In 2010 Mark was given the opportunity to co-create an activity to celebrate National Volunteer’s day in Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum. The resulting activity used a green screen to insert visitors into images related to the museum and was entitled ‘Put Yourself In The Picture’.
Visitors were photographed in front of the screen, superimposed onto a background of their choice using Photoshop actions, and then given a printout of the final image as a souvenir. Each image featured RAMM’s logo, and its “RAMM Explorers” branding, so the activity also served as a promotional tool.
Now Mark has developed a web app to speed up the process for an entirely digital activity to encourage social sharing of the images. The experience is called Green Screen Submarine, with the app enabling the processing and emailing of an image in a few simple clicks.
