Make An Animated Music Video (Using Green Screen Technology)

Our “Animated Music Video Residency” is a fun filled 3 or 5 day program where students create an animated music video based on poems they have written. They can also use poems or songs by other beloved children’s poets. Sean brings everything needed including a digital studio, green screen, cameras, lights and microphones.

Students explore poetry through the creation of a music video animation. Participants first examine the basic building blocks of poetry including, repetition, rhyme, assonance, consonance and alliteration.  Then Sean and the kids set the poems to music. The kids learn the song and record an audio track.

After teaching the kids choreography to the song, he films them performing in front of a green screen. Lastly, students are introduced to the postproduction process where they learn how mathematics, art, science and music all play an important role in the production of animated shows and music videos. This residency has curriculum connections with math, science, literature, reading and art.
