Hi. I got a shot with a teacher standing in front of a white tablet (not a green regular one) in a class room. Im going to write some text on this tablet. Do you have any tips on how to make this writing believable? Any font that helps selling this? And how to composite this to make it look real? Stig

check out dafont.com lots of good fonts for what you need. I had one in mind, but its cursive and probably won't help you.

Post a few stills - ideas come easier when we see something, you know, we're visual people...

Whatever font you use I would comp the clip on top of itself using the font as a track matte and adjust the Levels/Curves to a dark gray. This way you keep the texture and shadows on the board. Obviously you will have to roto or pull a luma key to comp the teacher on top.

The frame grab suggests that the teacher is in the act of writing. Is he writing jibberish or is he writing what you want to see on the board?

To make your life easier, you could re-shoot with the subject actually writing something with a dry-erase marker.
