MASTERCLASS: Green Screen Production



Green screen is a widely used technique to create special effects shots. But it is often done incorrectly or considered to be too expensive for smaller productions.

How to shoot the "plate" (background) shots and how to shoot the foreground shots. The use of a chrome ball to match the plate and foreground lighting will be explained as well as how to create the illusion of motion in the foreground shot with moving lights or cookaloris.
