Part A – Rob Jones
Green Screen Compositing
This is composed of three layers:
Basic Check List
Background must be evenly lit
Any shadows on the screen will make it difficult to key out.
Ideally the subject needs to be as far away as possible from the background, this will help to eliminate ‘green spill’ (reflected green light on subject)
The subject should lit separately to control exposure and direction of light source.
Depth of Field
Be experimental and push limits
Have awareness of different types of lighting in a wide variety of films.
This tutorial was a good introduction to green screen in a studio, having said that I would liked to have gone at faster pace. I had already covered basic lighting setups in year one. I do appreciated that the pace of the lesson is governed by the ability of the class.

Types of Lenses
Photography & Cinema lenses
The main difference is that the photography lenses have f-stops and are various sizes whereas the cinema lenses have t-stops and are the same circumference.
