NCompass Live: Pretty Sweet Tech - How to Make Green Screen Videos Using Free and Low-Cost Tools - Recorded Online Session 


Special monthly episodes of NCompass Live! Join the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Amanda Sweet, as she guides us through the world of library-related Pretty Sweet Tech.

Green screen videos can take you anywhere in the world without leaving the library. In this session you will learn how to use free and low-cost tools to shoot and edit green screen videos in your library. I can't detail everything in an hour, but you will get a very nice overview of how everything works. I will also shoot and edit a short clip live and in real time! By the end of this session you will:

  • Understand the basics of how green screen works.
  • See a demonstration of a green screen video editor, and access a list of free and low-cost green screen editing options.
  • Learn the basic functionality of Canva to edit videos and add text with animation.
You will also gain access to my behind-the-scenes planning documents to see how I plan, storyboard, and script my green screen videos. Feel free to review these as you begin making your own tutorials. With these resources you will be ready and raring to set up a green screen in your library. I hope to see you there!
