Community Challenge: Green Screen Me!

Here’s your chance to do something with me! I recorded this while sitting in front of a green screen. “Chroma Keying” is a technique for mixing two images or frames together, in which a color from one image is removed, revealing another image behind it. It is commonly used for weather forecasts on the news. The weatherperson looks like they are standing in front of a large map. In the studio, it’s actually just a large blue or green background. The different weather maps are added to the screen using software.

You might already have the software installed (and yes, the new version of iMovie does an amazing job with chroma key / green screen shots).

So, here’s your chance! Decide what it is I was trying to say! Have fun, be creative, and make sure you show us what you come up with. Leave a comment here with the link to your creation, or upload it to your Geeks account.

  1. I’ve just uploaded my entry, its titled ‘Chris Pirillo Caught on the Toilet with his MBP!’. With all the strange faces Chris was pulling, I could just imagine him sitting on the toilet! And even better, with his beloved Macbook Pro!

    With iMovie 09’s new ‘Green Screen’ feature I was quickly be able to put this together, I added in a little jingle, and a few sound effects! Be sure to stick around to watch the whole video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEtSxmiEmRo
