Not that you would know it's Florida behind me, but that's Eckerd College in the background. I actually had no idea what was going to be behind me when I shot this. Hence, the Florida reference.
My Little Secret
Now that green screen week is over (don't worry I'll still do the 5DMKII and 7D tests soon), I have a confession to make...
Unless there is a very compelling reason to do it (or if it's for feature films), I don't love green screen stuff. I would much rather find a killer location and shoot with either a 35mm lens adapter or HD DSLRs. Much more aesthetic in my opinion.
Whew! I feel much better now that I got that off my chest!

HD DSLRs & Final Cut Studio - From Acquisition to Post to Distribution
Note: Footage is not color corrected and needs to be warmed up a bit. One take and that's it for today. Hopefully you'll learn something about green screen set ups.
