Studio Lighting - placing Talent outside
on Jan 17, 2014 at 10:59:49 pm

Currently we have been shooting our talent outside. But I'd like to try shooting the talent inside but make it look like they are outside.

We'd like to have very scenic locations.

How would you suggest I do this?

Shooting against a green screen would allow you to place your talent in front of any scene you like. The key to doing this believably is matching the light on your talent to the light in the background scene. If you search the COW for "green screen" you'll learn many approaches to shooting this way.

What do you think of the idea of using similar technique that Gravity the movie used with there light box?

I could take existing footage and images of location and light to talent with the images so that they would appear to be in that location?

Have you seen A set up like this?

Thank you

takes 10,000 hours to master something

The Gravity rig was used to light talent, and give visual references for performance. It did not visually put Sandra Bullock in the scenes... that was completely different compositing work.

It was however a very neat rig.

And at probably well over a million dollars, it ought to be.

My idea is to Capture background video as well as spherical HDR images, similar to spherical HDR images you would Capture too integrate CG into live-action, but instead use this lighting information to showing through LED televisions (like the lightbox in gravity but grass roots style) that will light the talent to help integrate the talent into the composited background.

So I would use A green screen set up and A bunch of LED televisions for my studio set up.

To that makes sense?

To you think it would work?
