Hi All,

A discussion came up at our last production meeting regarding our low budget, and the best way to achieve a good TV image comp in post. Our DP has requested that we not use scan sync and actual media on our prop TV's, instead he has suggested painting the inside of the television glass with chroma. Does this work?

It is a period piece (1960's) so the televisions have concave glass screens, and we would like to maintain the glass reflection without excessive $$$ in post...

Any and all comments would be appreciated.

What is the reason for wanting to maintain the reflection in the TV? Is there some sort of meaning behind it or something visually you want to be seen at some point in the story? If not then I would say dont worry about the reflection and worry more about how the story will play out with TV painted in chroma green.

We had a similar problem on my last film, which was set in 1959. Unfortunately we weren't even able to get a TV from that period and since it had to be very prominent in the picture, I had my production designer build a beautiful one with a greenscreen built into the screen area.

Then of course the same talented production designer created the CG visuals in post. If you wanna check out how it turned out feel free at the link below...Check out about 3:57 into it.

Hope this is of any help at all...
