Huge Green Screen Dilemma
Posted 26 June 2006 - 12:59 PM
The shoot is an Indy Car pit stop. The story board dictates the camera being about 100' on a fairly wide frame (35-50mm) from the pit box where the car will enter, crew will changes four tires, and car will exit frame.
As the car enters the frame, camera moves in to settle on a medium shot of a crew member as the car has exited frame.
My dilemma: Is there a soundstage in Chicago large enough for this move? If we go outside, where the heck am I going to find enough green screen to cover that intial wide shot from almost 100' away from the car? It seems that I would need almost 4 stories high of cloth while I would have to paint the foreground?
I do not know where to begin to secure this large of a green screen surface for my background.

Paint the cyc wall, no problem.
If you need a REAL car stage that has more than enough of everything, go to Detroit. 90' X 120' X 35' stage with a 20' X 60' light box. It would make the job a piece of cake.
