iMovie: Green Screens


No need for expensive equipment! Replacing green screens with a background photograph is simple with iMovie.

  • A recent copy of iMovie
  • A large piece of bright green fabric. I got mine from a local fabric store, but this looks more official. Bigger is better.
  • A video camera (I used an iPhone for this video).

What teachers are saying

"I love Byrdseed TV! I use it as a resource and inspiration source! Thank you so much for sharing your ideas and knowledge. (Helped my students make our first green screen production just today!)" ~ Kari in Texas

"I am the coordinator for our district GATE program. Byrdseed.TV is one of my favorite sites and one of the best investments I have made for the program." ~ Jeannette in California

"I absolutely LOVE all of the ideas on your site. Right now I am using Byrdseed TV to differentiate activities for my clustered students to work on when the rest of the class is doing something they’ve already mastered." ~ Wendy in Washington
