Shooting On Green Screen

Busy week shooting TV commercials, but I brought my camera along yesterday to try and get you some behind the scenes stuff…

And today, this shall be my domain…

These are some of my makeup cases. I travel with sooo much stuff!
There’s all kinds of wardrobe & props behind there including plastic chain with scary looking manacle things, and under the clothing rack a plastic loaf of french bread.
I wonder what that shoot was about???

all set up, ready to rock n roll. The styrofoam head isn’t mine. I think it belongs to the french bread people.

Hard at work (haha!!!) but looking oh so craptastic.
The actress was really good fun to work with.
I do absolutely love my T shirt though.
Its from Drag Strip Girl Designs

Behind this door is the green screen studio. Its HUGE.

Kinda hard to see, but the walls curve into the floor, so there are no edges or corners.

This was a single camera shoot. The computer will separate the actress from the green background, and they will digitally place her somewhere else.
Although they can isolate that particular green, you still dont have any wardrobe or makeup with any green undertone to it.

We were shooting HD too, which is always cool. Completely unforgiving, but very cool.

To the right of the camera is the monitor. It too is HD. I watch the monitor while we’re shooting so that I can really see what the camera is taking in.

The director stepped in for a minute

Blurry (courtesy of my brilliant photographic skills!) but we’re about to do another take.

So now when you hear people talking about “green screen”, you know what it looks like!
