Class 05 - 

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

In this class, we dove deeper into green screen and motion tracking.

The assignment is to create a promo/Kickstarter style video 10 seconds or more with at least:

1 - logo

1 - lower third

1 - call to action

1 - green screen, masking, or tracking shot (one of these not all three)

 

Use as many shots as you need to create your video. You don't need audio, but it may help. I'm looking for the skills that were taught in class to be applied to this project. Be creative, have fun, and let me know if you have any questions.
