Green screens can offer a lot of versatility and open new doors of opportunity to create more content in your studio or gain more experience with your production skills. So, let’s take a look at some of the challenges and benefits of working with a green screen in your space! We recently were able to install a green screen for a corporate studio. Their needs presented a unique set of challenges and benefits to having a green screen in their studio.
So, let’s set the stage: The corporation had set aside a space for a video studio and had the goal to create quality video content to present to the rest of their organization and their network. What they didn’t have was a very large space and being a corporation, they also knew they needed to be able to produce content quickly for more immediate use. Knowing this, using a green screen sounded like a desirable way to get what they needed out of their studio!
Everyone knows that time is your most valuable commodity when filming. The setup and constant changing of a set, no matter how simple, can eat into your limited filming time, causing delays and compounding problems. Using a green screen can help give you the ability to shoot a variety of settings in one place without having to make time-consuming adjustments to your background.
1 have as much separation as possible between the green screen and your talent. This separation eliminates the light bouncing back off the green screen and hitting the back of our talent. The light that bounces off the green screen will be green and will contaminate our Key if it hits our talent.
3 create a luminance exposure separation between your green screen and your talent. This will also help your Keyer to better distinguish which luminance needs to be removed, creating a more seamless look between your talent and your GFX background.
Designing a green screen into your studio can be tricky. By letting Lambda create the studio design for the corporation, we were able to create an exact CAD with the best possible placement of green screens, cameras, lighting, and talent for the best possible outcome. Overall, greens screens can be a great option to overcome space limitations, help with time constraints, or if you are just looking to bring more flexibility into your studio.
