Small Classroom



There’s an extremely good chance a movie you love includes visual effects. One of those visual effects is the use of a green screen to put a character in places that would be almost impossible to without that green screen.

This will be a fun way to use our imaginations and bring ordinary footage to life. We may even step off this planet and onto another!

In this camp, you will learn how to light, shoot, edit, and composite (convincingly placing a character in an environment) green screen footage.

Each student will have a chance to act, light, shoot, edit/composite, and present. Students will work as a crew for each other to accomplish their creations.
