Who do you want to be? And where? See how green screen technology used in film and TV can be a tool for transformation, challenging how others perceive us and how we perceive ourselves.


Artist and educator Katriona Beales has used green screen in Autograph’s first-ever programme for children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. With their families, children in our workshops made films of themselves surrounded by the fantastical backdrops and props they created.

As We Are But Not As You Know Us expands on these workshops, transforming the gallery into an installation of green fabric, video projection and sensory materials.

With green screen, backdrops can be digitally layered onto anything green in a film set. These insertions can be drawings, photographs or moving images. Combined with filming on a live projection, the technology allows us to create and remake our surroundings as we perform – free to enjoy unfamiliarity.

Through play and collaboration, stories can be told and alternate ways of being imagined.
