Movie Making in the Classroom: Filming the Movie and Using a Greenscreen

By Beth Newingham on April 3, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

When my students are partaking in a movie-making project, sometimes we film scenes in front of our makeshift "green screen" using a turquoise flannel blanket that we tack to a bulletin board wall in our classroom. This allows me to project images behind the students when editing the video on the computer. For many movies, this makes students look like they are in different states and countries. By using a sturdy tripod, students can take turns as the camera operator.

Watch all the movies my students and I have ever made!
