Students at Elkhorn Crossing, a special enrichment program high school in Georgetown, KY, work together in career-development “village” groups that integrate multimedia production into many classroom projects. At KET’s Media Lab, they explored how the Chroma Key or “greenscreen” video effect can be used to place students in any time or place to enhance video production projects — such as the portrayal of famous people from WWII for history projects. They saw, as in the example below, how easy it is to add documentary media information to a multimedia presentation using the greenscreen effect:
