Great work today from St Clare’s, Ormesby, Caedmon and Saltburn Primaries. 80 pupils learned the basics of green screen technology through an iPad then combined it with their expert writing skills to extol the virtues of their local area. As if this wasn’t enough they even created short montages based on a fantasy trip, complete with unusual foreign guest stars (you know who you are!).
I asked a lot of them in a day and what you see below is very much their first drafts. In one day they rarely get the luxury to make mistakes and then put them right, such as filming larger than the green screen, moving the camera erratically or leaving chairs in the shot! However, next time they use a green screen, they will consider these things, learn from their experience and produce even better results. For what I threw at them in one day, they did really well and have the skills to polish their work going forward.
Well done everyone.
