How many of us have said to ourselves: I wish I could set up a green screen in my basement so I could composite myself into my favourite Christmas movie? Well dream no more! This is the first of two hands-on workshops all about getting you into pictures! In this first we will look at what we need to set up our own basement green screen studio and how to shoot the talent (that’s you) on the cheap! We supply the Christmas-movie clip, you supply yourself and any props you would like to bring along. Be prepared to make movie magic!
