Green Screen Digital Compositing NYC
Call 212-219-1075 . Bill Milling
There are endless possibilities to using a variety of techniques to shoot live talent on Green Screen and then digitally compositing them into photo-real or fantasy backgrounds or a combination of both as per many of the images below.
Usually, the camera is locked down to make the marriage of live foreground and either photographic or CGI virtual backgrounds.
But we use a process called cameramatch move which uses high-end software to seamlessly match the foreground and background images while tracking the positions of both as they move.
The process uses a series of track points (temporarily) attached to the Green Screen. These “fixed reference points” are used by the computer program to sync the two moving images.
The following videos were shot by the American Movie Company on our Green Screen Stage.
