A split screen video of the effects used in Bible Study. You can see what the raw green screen footage looked like, on the left, before we messed around with it in Sony Vegas Pro 9.0. To view Bible Study in its entirety, go here.
As you can see, we do not yet own a professional green screen. We used a bed sheet draped over a television cabinet and held tight on either side by myself and Oriana (production assistant/ Justin's girlfriend). We ironed it a bit before filming, but, as you can see, we were too lazy to get it perfect. This did did create a tiny problem in editing, but we got around it...
Tips for using a green screen:
- use an flat, even toned backdrop
- in addition to lighting the subject, light the screen
- have the subject stand away from the screen to eliminate shadows
- get rid of wrinkles
