We will explore just how easy it can be to use a Green screen app to engage pupils and transport them to anywhere in the world with a simple piece of green cloth. 
With a teleprompter app, their scripts can be displayed on a scrolling autocue for them to read while acting, bringing an end to looking down at pieces of paper or forgetting their lines.

Course Contents:

  • Begin by writing a script for a news report where participants take on different roles
  • Explore a Teleprompting app for displaying the script as scrolling text
  • Gather background images for different locations from a variety of sources
  • Film each part in front of the green screen
  • Learn about editing the performances and backgrounds to get the best results

Key Skills:

  • Use green screen as a stimulus to engage children in script writing
  • Adopt a role in which children express opinions and give reasons to an audience
  • Refine the use of storylines in imaginative writing
  • Independently record and edit video then share their work for peer assessment

Script Writing

Scripts can be written anywhere, Microsoft Word, the notes app or directly into the teleprompter app. We will write short scripts with each participant to act out over the course of the session.

Teleprompting Apps

We will explore a couple of teleprompting apps and explain the differences between free and paid versions. You can then decide what is right for you based on your needs.

Gathering Materials

Now that you have a story and a script we need a location. We will explore various ways of getting backgrounds for your Green Screen Videos.

Filming the Scenes

We will film the participants in front of the Green Screen for the background to be added later.
