How did I learn to light a green screen?  I had 4 amazing mentors that showed me their unique style and etiquette while I was coming up the technician ladder as a gaffer and key grip. Each one was different, some things I loved and some things I felt were over kill.  I took the best of all 4 and turned that into my own style and etiquette.

In this Green Screen Series you will learn all the latest techniques on how to rig, light, expose, balance and light your talent in front of it.  We will pull back the curtain so that you can understand what process lets your talent move within a green screen freely as well as if you only have two lights, which ones will do the best job.  Every storyteller will come across this ask, have you lit green screens, can I see some of your work?  When I was first starting out as a cinematographer, I got asked to show my work a lot, not in a demo reel , but breaking it down to showcase that I could deliver what I promised.  The proof is in the pudding and this art of CGI is fastly becoming a huge requirement for all artists to understand and master.
