My computer won’t put a fancy background behind me when I Zoom. A friend has a green screen to help with their work, and I’ve been mulling over buying one for a few weeks now. I like the idea of having something really interesting behind me, or to play with video editing, changing the background for fun or to make a point.
Maybe “green screen thinking” could help with preparing for the viva too. How can you change your perspective on your work? How can you alter the background to what you’re doing?
- Can you imagine yourself in the role of an examiner?
- Can you change perspective to someone who has found a fault, or thinks the opposite of you?
- What would it be like if you were new to your thesis? What would be tough?
With the metaphorical press of a button can you shift perspective? Maybe you would find something valuable for your preparation.
