Hi,
I have to shoot a music video in which the director wants to use a green screen.
I've never shot with a green screen before. My understanding is that it should be lit separatly and as even as possible. I won't be able to have any kinos for this shoot (very, very low budget), what would be the best way to do it? Do I need to use green gels? I'm a bit confused about it.
Thanks a lot

Hi,

Is it a full body shot or a are you only seeing the back wall?

Poor man's process.
2x Blondies with Full 216. Make sure the light is even all the way across. Also stage your talent up stage a little so they don't have green light bouncing on their backs. (2 floppies helps control the spill) Separate your talent with a 650 or 500 backlight and key them with whatever light your have left in your budget.

Search the archives as this topic has come up a lot.
