Hi there,

We're a group of art sudents tryin to shoot a short film which treats about dreams and unreality . The things is most of the scenes are going to be shot on set, but we have not backgrounds to put on the set. So my question is,

is it possible to shoot actors on set and then adding the background using Chroma Key? Would it turn out very artificial? Which type of lights do you recommend me the best?

From what I understand, it's hard to chroma key the floor, but you should be able to do the walls, if you do it correctly. I have scene people chroma key everything bu the floor, but its more work to make it look good.
