Follow these easy steps to complete your assessment:

  1. Do your research
  2. Write your script
  3. Plan your filming - do a sketch like a story board
  4. Film with an ipad, using a green screen (before you start, watch the videos below)
  5. Save your film to Camera Roll in the folder - Year 7,8,9 or 10
  6. Airdrop your film or Open the App - "Easy Transfer" on the ipad
  7. Choose your films from Camera Roll
  8. You will be given an address - e.g.
  9. Type this address into your Google browser or Safari on your laptop
  10. Your films will appear magically!

  16. Your film is then added to the top of the background picture
  17. Adjust your films - cropping, etc

  21. Discuss with your teacher where the films need to be shared.
