Special effects- making dreams a reality!

Special effects are the way forward, they are used in most commercial avenues and for personal endevours. Due to this fact many educational establishments have started to make learning basic special effects part of the curriculum.

A school might need a greenscreen room, also known as a chroma key room, for various educational purposes and creative endeavours. A greenscreen room can serve as a versatile and valuable tool for educational institutions, providing opportunities for creativity, enhanced learning experiences, and practical skills development in various subject areas.


Why you need a green screen room...

Video Production: Greenscreen rooms are commonly used in video production. Schools may have film or media production classes where students learn about filmmaking and visual effects. A greenscreen room allows students to create scenes and backgrounds that are not physically present, enhancing their storytelling abilities.

Broadcasting and Journalism: Schools with broadcasting or journalism programs can use greenscreen rooms to create professional-looking news broadcasts or video presentations. The background can be replaced with images or graphics relevant to the content being presented.

Visual Effects and Animation: In animation and visual effects courses, greenscreen rooms can be used to teach students about compositing and creating special effects. They can film characters or objects in front of a greenscreen and then manipulate the background digitally.

Creativity and Innovation: Greenscreen rooms encourage creativity and innovation. Students can use them for various creative projects, such as making music videos, short films, or art installations. It can be a space where students explore their artistic talents.

Virtual Field Trips: Greenscreen technology can enable virtual field trips. Schools can transport students to different locations or historical periods without leaving the classroom, enhancing their learning experience.

STEM Education: Greenscreen rooms can be used in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. For example, students can create educational videos explaining complex scientific concepts with dynamic visual aids.

Language Learning: Language teachers can use greenscreen rooms to create immersive language learning experiences. Students can "visit" foreign countries virtually, practice speaking in different scenarios, or even perform in-language plays against appropriate backdrops.

Interactive Presentations: Teachers can use greenscreen technology to make their lessons more engaging and interactive. They can present lessons in front of dynamic backgrounds, which can capture students' attention and make the learning experience more enjoyable.

Community Projects: Schools can use greenscreen rooms for community outreach projects, such as recording public service announcements, promotional videos, or interviews with local figures.

Performing Arts: Schools with drama or performing arts programs can use greenscreen rooms for rehearsals and performances. This technology allows them to experiment with different sets and scenes without the need for physical props and backgrounds. 

Shooting home video using green screen paint

How does it work...

By filming a character or object in front of the green wall, you can add any desired background later using the Chromakey technique. Make sure the subject in front of your greenscreen background is not green or that persons are not wearing green clothing. In addition, the lighting needs to be set accordingly. 

There can be no shadows on the background. That is why an object often has to be at least three meters away from the screen, and you also need lighting from the rear. Take into account that fluttering hairs often cause problems; they are too thin to be perceived by the computer, which may cause the hairs to disappear. 

Use a video editing programme – such as Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie, Magix Video Deluxe, Pinnacle Studio Plus, Sony Vegas, etc. - to add any desired background to your video.

Some other points to think of...

When creating your home studio there are a few other things to consider:

  • To ensure you have good acoustics to prevent echo around the room, why not try some accoustic panels or artwork to keep that echo at bay.
  • Everyone needs the perfect lighting, try some natural lighting by a window or use a table top or floor standing ring light to illuminate the way.
  • Get your hands on a good quality camera or phone with a tripod to keep things in place- no one likes shaky footage. 
  • Get some cozy furniture that looks professional, and that is adjustable in order to place yourself at the right height for the video.
