Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Green Screen?
Here’s a link to a very short video that tells you all about Green Screen –
What kind of venue do I need to host a workshop?
The green screen needs a height and width of approx 2m and ideally a clear space 2m in front of the screen. The room needs to be bright with good lighting.
Will you need to put up big lights in my house?
No, as long as the room is naturally bright or has enough indoor lighting there is no need for extra lights. Although, I always bring a small portable handheld cool battery lamp in case it is needed.
