In this piece by Eric Molinsky, you’ll hear about green screens, the technology behind many special effects in film and television. The idea is relatively simple, but acting with a green screen is quite different from acting in a normal scene.
Think about these questions before listening:
- Would it be easier or harder to act in a green screen? Why?
- What kinds of movies might make use of a green screen?
- Would child actors find it easier, or harder, to act in a green screen?
- What might an actor do to work effectively with a green screen?
