Retro Screen Swap – Skillshare Course Resources

Put your own Graphics in a Game Boy Screen with After Effects

Ever wanted to add your own graphics and footage to a Game Boy Screen?


01 - Bootgum Logo on Gameboy

To help me dip my feet into Skillshare (Full Course Here), I wanted to craft a course around a very specific effect I've used for a few videos. A retro inspired screen-replace to help you produce interesting, short snippets that you can use on social.


Download the Footage Here (180MB .MOV with Alpha)

This is the footage of the Game Boy with a transparent screen (so you an place graphics inside it easily). You will also need to add your own background colour.

Download the example resources - Flyer to an event and TMNT Game Boy Footage (13MB)

This zip file just includes a few files to help you get started, including the 3 pieces to the example Event Flyer used in the Skillshare Class as well as some Game Boy footage you can play with.
