Dean Shareski Teaches us How to Use Green Screen

Link to Dean’s Viddler Video

Dean Shareski‘s keynote captivated my two classes. Many of them commented on the wiki, and Dean did a great service to all of us by sharing how he did the Flat Classroom keynote (and blogging it.)

This is great, because he has modeled and shown them the power of asking and collaboration and connection! Dean, you are great!!

If you’re using video at all, this is a must see. I don’t have any money in my budget, but somehow I’m going to figure out how to get Adobe Premier elements or Pinnacle Studio (I have 10 but would have to buy an upgrade) and a green screen. I want to do this!

And he even showed how they can green screen and put both of them on the same screen. Now wouldn’t that be cool.

Thanks, Dean! You inspire in so many ways.

I wish I wish I wish I could do green screen. How?

  1. You can use a green screen using Pinnacle Studio 10, you just need a smooth green cloth (you can change the color you’re using in Pinnacle Studio) and good enough lighting.
    The steps are the same as shown in the video.
    So go ahead and have a go! 🙂

  2. Leopard has a very cheep backdrop effect that you can apply in photobooth while taking videos. Cheep, not great quality but VERY easy.

    At my school, we bought a can of chroma key blue paint ($50-60) this summer and went to town on a helpless wall. Add in two cheep photo lights and you have the makings of a very basic studio. The hastily put together instructions I made for our students are here (for FinalCut): http://wiki.micds.org/wiki/Student_Technology_Group/Student_Documentation/Blue_Screen

  3. Vicki, are you sure Pinnacle 10 doesn’t have green screen aka chroma key? Also, as far as a green backdrop goes, I once used a $2 bright green plastic tablecloth and it worked pretty well. If you don’t see any in the stores now, just wait until St. Patrick’s Day.

  4. Great video Dean.
    What does anyone suggest for mac users? I’ve tried a number of green screen plug-ins for iMovie, but never really had any success. Any other ideas? I recently bought a mac book but haven’t had time to try and figure out final cut express, having 5th graders, I don’t have anyone with the technical expertise that high school students might provide. Help anyone?
