Thursday – Friday
Objectives: Students will check grades and turn in any unfinished classwork- behavior contract, finding physical file, creating student folders on the Imac, saving to their student folder and camera shots. Students will watch Chroma Key examples from previous students and we will model how to record video footage in front of the Green Screen. I will model how to capture the video footage from the flip mino camera and import it into FCE. I will model how to Chroma Key out the Green Screen and manipulate the footage (size, orientation) to make it believable. Students will search an interesting image on the internet to place themselves into using the Green Screen and save to their student file. They will then videotape each other in front of the Green Screen interacting in the make believe environment.
