Task 4 – After Effects

The workshop today focused on using a short green screen video and the editing it through after effects. We learnt how to crop down the videos and add affects to the background to make it look like a realistic old styled T.V. We then used the skills we learnt previously to add in some basic text to accompany our videos. Below is the outcome.

This can link to the research I have already done into Kinetic typography. I have also done some research briefly into the history of green screen and when it became popular as well as when it actually began. A useful website to support this research is http://visual.ly/history-green-screen . I was able to find a photograph which sums up the history of green screen nicely.
