If you’re at all interested in shooting green/blue screen. Here’s a great tutorial by VFX Artist Jeff Foster. It also includes a great tutorial on building your own video lights. I have already started building some of these.
In the second course in his two-part series on green-screen (and blue-screen) tools and techniques, author, producer, and VFX Artist Jeff Foster covers the nitty-gritty of production and post-production. On the production side, you’ll learn how to build your own portable lights, create professional lighting setups, and shoot with a green or blue screen outdoors. You’ll also get tips on choosing keying software and working with virtual sets. All this will help you get the best footage possible; however, there will always be things you need to “fix in post,” so this course will also help you fix problem shots. [view video via video2brain]
