If you’re an amateur filmmaker or you’ve just been curious about green screening, you can now learn it for free thanks to Paul Trillo and the people over at Skillshare. Together they launched an hour-long online class that teaches viewers about the fundamentals of green screen production and post-production and offers a bit of inspiration to help filmmakers with their next video project.
The class is perfect for video editors, aspiring directors, filmmakers, visual effects artists, and basically any person with a curious mind just interested in learning more about how green screen actually works. Armed with just some green cardstock, a picture frame, digital camera, and Adobe After Effects, Trillo gives a step-by-step process on how to create a “window into another world” video.
In the class, you’ll learn everything from how to come up with interesting green screen concepts to the final editing stages in After Effects where you actually remove the green and replace it with other imagery. Trillo even covers motion tracking so your green screen footage moves along with the rest of the scene.
