Virtual Backlot Reel Shows Greenscreen Has Come a Long Way


One of our favorite readers, Lagrange, sent this in last night, and it was a lot damn cooler than I thought it would be so I’m posting it up for all of you to enjoy. Greenscreen technology has been around for decades now, but lately its evolved to the point where its prevelantly used in movies and in TV shows, but we don’t even know it.

Check out this video, which shows scenes that have been filmed in front of a greenscreen, and I guarantee you would never have guessed most of them ever used the tech. Usually you think of big sci-fi epics like Avatar and Transformers being filmed on a lot or in a warehouse, but no, even Ugly Betty has scenes filled entirely in a virtual studio. I guess it’s cheaper than getting the permits to film in downtown NYC right?
