Family New Years Green Screen Video

This afternoon members of our family recorded some short video highlights and memories of 2015, in front of the green screen we set up over the Christmas holidays in my wife’s classroom makerspace. I brought these video clips into the Green Screen iPad app by Do Ink, and added related images as well as videos in the background, and then exported each video separately into the iPad photo roll. This was a different workflow for me using the Green Screen app, and I really liked how it allowed me to be more deliberate and varied in my use of backgrounds. Here is the six minute final result, which I combined and added some text annotations to in iMovie for iPad:
