Greenscreen Days

The two greenscreen filming days were amazing. Thank you to everyone involved: technicians, teachers, language leaders, and all the pupils. It did turn into a bit of a Michael Jackson event on the second day, with lots of tributes. Some of the videos that have puppets are up on Teacher Tube, click on the links to see them: The beach Michael Vader Ed and Tim, I managed to rescue the Beach one and the Incompetent Weatherman one. I have written up some notes greenscreen filming in case people in other schools want to try something similar – it was certainly the craziest 2 days I have had in a long while. Oh, and look in the Dereham and Fakenham Times today for the photos of the French café last week.
