So we’ve just found out we’re in the Semi-Finalist for the Overall Award at the Olympus Film Festival. Yay, go team Rebecca Gold! Spread the word, my friends!

That’s an excellent way to show the wonders of green screen! (And it made me want to check out the series!). I do a LOT of green screen as my series has a lot of stop motion, so I know what it takes to get a clean key; yours looks great!


(Herman Wang) #10

Thanks :slight_smile:
The first two segments were shot in a proper greenscreen location, which made it easy. The third was a little less proper, as you can see from the frame before the zoom/crop is done, and took a bit more keying work.

Love it!

Here’s my Green screen :slight_smile:


(Deb Ethier) #14

Great job! Hair in silhouette can be tricky to key - looks like you nailed it.


(Ian David Diaz) #15

Thanks, I had to do it in layers for each part that didn’t key well, it was a nightmare!!! But well worth it :slight_smile:


(Deb Ethier) #16

Ah, yes - the “joys” of chroma key.
