Best way to achieve this look
on Jun 5, 2012 at 4:31:31 pm

So im shooting some interview footage this friday, and im looking to have an end result similar to the look of the interview footage in

http://www.apple.com/ca/iphone/home/includes/video_4s.html#video-4s

Would it be best to use a green screen then chroma key it to a white solid?

or should i shoot with a white background (fabric) and key out the grey in the texture?

perhaps i should even be buying a better white background, and if thats the case can anyone make any recommandations?

thanks

Use white fabric. Iron out the creases and blow that sucker out with light so you get a pure white. Quick and easy

Agreed. Take a regular old bed sheet, layer it a few times, put it a few feet back and hit it with some light from behind. We've done several videos this way and it works great - just make sure to clip the white out with some color correction. I'd say this is way easier than shooting green screen or a real background.

If you shoot green screen you'll create a LOT more work for yourself and it won't look as good in the end.

I don't have the specifics on what our shoot team used - I wasn't actually there, just worked on the footage in post. (what I told you is basically what they told me as to how they've shot the interviews).

I'm not a gaffer but from what I know of their equipment I'd imagine that would do the trick - I don't recall them using anything too huge. Of course it also depends on what ISO you are shooting at, with what lens, and all that...
