Thank you, Linda, Eric, and Shannon
I have added all three of these resources to my toolkit. I had not played with Touchcast since Mobile Media Maker . I just got my Mac back from the Apple hospital, last night, so definitely will check out the new version. And, yeah Eric- for landing on a PC version.
Do you see a need for the paid version or does the Starter kit have what most kids will need? 

Perhaps we need a Green Screen Showcase? 
Since Think About It Thursday is aimed at getting kids to think more deeply, creatively, and critically - would any of you have any ideas on now we might use this technology to invite connections between classrooms?

For those working with iPads, the free Touchcast app has green screen functionality - and embedded vApps = video apps to embed interactive web elements like live twitter feeds, web links you can explore while watching the video (picture in picture), polls with automatic response and more.  Company blog says web-based version is coming soon...  And did I mention free?

We've just begun our own green screen adventures: thanks again for the resources! Needing portability, we purchased one of the 3-light ePhoto kits from Amazon (good suggestion re: the need for good lighting.) The challenging step was to find a free and easily accessible method on the Windows platform... sadly the .xml script for Moviemaker that circulated a while back doesn't work in Moviemaker Live (APIs are not open?) and the older versions of WMM are cumbersome and don't support native QuickTime footage from iPhones. After sifting through a few freebies I landed on MoviePuls Starter Edition, which has a low learning curve and a very flexible Chroma Key effect.

For those of you from the Central Region who attended the Green Screen session--a quick update...

iMove '13 is very different than the 2011 version, but here's a YouTube tutorial:

I updated the Green Screen Resources page that was shared at Vita-Learn Central to include the iMove '13 tutorial.
