Hey guys, anyone ever shot beer on greenscreen? I have a job coming up with a slow motion pour that needs to be placed on several different solid colour backgrounds. I'm thinking since the beer is more or less skin tone that green would be the best background, slightly underexposed with plenty of bounce cards to get some solid specular reflections in the beer. Wondering if anyone has any other pointers that will save me from possible nightmare keying issues.
Hmm, I would think black would be the way to go and get a luma key. That way, you'll never have any black in your actual pour. I'd be worried that the green would reflect and infiltrate the color of the beer.
I'm ok with some green showing through the liquid, as this will key out fine and give me some transparency. As long as it's lit well the beer itself should be a nice solid yellow at it's thickest point.
Liquid shoots are pretty stressful, especially considering I'm not even shooting it. Just tell them what I want and hope for the best!
