2-day Green Screen Workshops
Once a quarter Digistars offers a weekend workshop in live action filmmaking using green screen technology to students in grades 3 through 8 at our studio in central Denver.
Use Green Screen Technology!
Our giant green screen allows kids to write stories that take place anywhere in time or space. Imagine the fun movie we could make that takes place on a space ship hurling through outer space, or in the old West, or even on the streets of Paris! Dive into our well-stocked custume trunk to add props and realistic effects to your movie.
We watch clips of movies made with green screen technology and nail down the elements of storytelling along with the techniques of live action filmmaking through storyboards and shot lists.
Let the Filming Begin!
Now we get to play with the intuitive Apple technology and shoot the movies! In live action programs, students rotate through the various production roles in shooting and editing. Each child gets time to write, act, direct, operate the camera, and more, all under the gentle tutaledge of our expert instructors.
The moviemaking process includes learning about professional lighting and camera techniques as well.
Editing Makes the Difference!
Learn how to edit like a pro! We’ll do all the things that make a movie professional-looking: titles, credits, special effects, voice overs, background music, and more. We may even explore special effects like simulating crashes, smashes, and more!
Need to put together an audition video for Denver School of the Arts? What if you want to make an impressive movie for a class or portfolio, or to put together an acting reel?
We can help.
Our trained instructors are real-world filmmakers and film students, and they can work with you one-on-one to help you realize your digital storytelling goals.
Contact us to discuss your needs and how we can help you achieve them!
