So that we could learn how green screen and lip syncing is done we went to a facility that had a room specifically for the purpose of using a green screen. Here we learnt how to record in a studio like that and how different lights and position can affect how the green screen will act.
A few things we were told when using a green screen:
- Don’t wear a shirt that’s the same colour as the green screen
- Don’t stand too close to the back or you’ll create a shadow
- Using coloured lights on the back can cause issues as well in post production
- Having low angle shots or jumping can cause th camera to go over the green screen and in turn make that shot unusable
Below are some screenshots of the session:
