green screen and lighting

Our task in the final clinic was to edit a video by changing the green to a video Mr Henderson took with a drone.

when editing we had to drag the video of the man talking onto video 2 and drag the drone footage into video 1.

then you must go to the effects panel and then into video effect and scroll down to keying as in ultra key which means green screen, then scroll down to ultra key and drag ultra key to your video 2 line then use the paint leaking icon to change the green to the video 1 by just dragging and clicking on the green in the background.


no food otherwise it will get disgusting and we don’t want that at all.

absolutely no shoes.

never lock the door because then the teachers or other people will start knocking on the door and might interrupt a video or something.

watch your step when walking around.

and turn light switches 2 to 5 on for lighting.

and don’t stand against the wall while videoing because that can stuff the lighting up.

loyalty free music


in the loyalty free music clinic we learnt all about copy rite and what to music to use when your making a film.

we had to look for 5 different music pieces for a topic, one topic was wonder, star wars, the greatest showman, titanic and it.

honestly titanic was hard to find a music piece for it, same goes for the greatest showman.

the web we used was called bensound but you can also use you-tube and making sure the music on you-tube wasn’t copy rite.

when getting music from you-tube you need to use mp4 converter, we will learn more about that further into the year.

star wars epic

wonder inspire

it creepy

titanic romantic

the greatest showman hip jazz


audio booths

Remember no more than 2 people.

no food.

leave the it as you found it.

leave the mic on the bench.

leave the usb neatly on the bench.

make sure the mic and stand are secure for safety reasons.

keep runway clear.

don’t knock on the door or window because that’s disrespectful and not following the year 6 culture.

don’t take to much time in the audio booth’s.

don’t touch the mic while you are recording.

storyboards and shotlists


when making a video 60% planning, 10% videoing and 30% editing.

when planning you have two options storyboard or shot list.

to make a storyboard you need to draw your scenes down on a piece of paper one by one.

to make a shot list you just need take a photo of every part in the video from the start to the end.

when making the video you need to make sure you have your plan at all times to know exactly what you are doing next.

In the editing stage you need to make sure the sound is clear and the video went to according to your plan.


camera framing image

the first thing we learnt about camera framing was the the different types of pictures.

master/establishing shot, a master is kind of like a landscape photo because it is taken from a long way from the main subject.

full shot, a full shot is a photo taken of a person but you take a full shot you need to be able to see the whole persons body, that’s why it’s called a full shot.

medium shot, a medium shot is explained like a full shot but a medium shot is the waist up to the top of their head.

medium close up, a photo taken from a person’s shoulders upward’s to the top of their head.

close up,a photo of someone’s face.

extreme close up, in a extreme close up picture, the camera would be focusing on the eyes and face to really kind of see what they are thinking and their facial expressions.

tips on videoing

when your trying to get a close up of something don’t zoom in a lot because it gets really sensitive when moving your hands so instead just come closer to the subject.

use the rule of thirds by focusing someone’s eyes on the first horizontal line so that you don’t leave all the empty space above there head.

when taking a camera out side make shore you bring all three legs pushed in to the middle, then pick it up with two hands and kindly ask someone else to open the door for you.

present piece to camera

Present piece to camera was learning about what you should be doing while talking into a camera.

We learnt to always look down the barrel of the camera while talking and be creative like using hand gestures or make something up creatively.

It is also good to practice before videoing, a could way to warm up is to learn your lines and practice looking into the camera.

A really important part of making a video is to know your purpose, even if your a person in the background or the one taking the video.
