This is my favourite project of the year. I can't wait to see your tributes to the greatest decade for music videos ;) Don't forget your homages!!
Ariel, Jessica and Max: Whitney Houston "I Wanna Dance with Somebody"
Celine, Ricarda, Kamilah: Rick Astley "Never Gonna Give You Up"
Ben, Keylon, Carmelle: RUN DMC "It's Tricky"
Kingsley, Blake, Tristan: Guns 'N Roses "Welcome to the Jungle"
Today, we will discuss how to set up and shoot against a Chroma Key background. It can be tricky (watch for shadows!), and all the work you put in before you shoot will save you time in post-production (and give you a way more realistic effect!)
We don't have time to waste, so we are going to jump 3 steps ahead today and start the planning process for our green screen project (listed in the other post).
Yesterday, you formed a TV production company. Please work with those partners for the duration of this assignment.
A made a small video that shows you one of the handy tools that can be used to gather footage from Youtube that we can use to practice our green screen/chroma key skills. You will need footage for all segments of the project. You should brainstorm your initial format/stories, and then go searching :)
Time to dust off your Adobe Premiere skills as we will be adding Chroma-key editing to your skill bank (and use the footage you have saved).
