The Magic of Green Screen Videomaking
Making a green screen video is magical!
My favorite thing about using a green screen is the ability to create the illusion of being anywhere other than where you really are. I’ve had a lot of fun putting myself (or my dog) into a piece of art, on a beach, or in unexpected places like the center of a frothing mug of cappuccino. I’ve observed students time traveling to Ancient Egypt to reenact the mummification process, and I’ve watched with wonder as they’ve fearlessly immersed themselves into news broadcasts of their own making.
Do Ink’s Green Screen and Drawing/Animation apps make it easy to tell a story by allowing a person to combine layers of meaning. While the green screen app is fantastic for bringing people and objects into a scene, combining photographs and/or video footage, the drawing/animation app adds even more creative potential. The drawing/animation app gives you the option to select from a library of animated props, as well as the ability to design your own original drawings and animations. It’s a lot of fun to combine the two apps to help tell a story and it’s also possible to use just one or the other depending upon your needs.
