A g-g-g-Gargon!?!

Spooky! A terrifying Gargon must have visited the set while shooting these frames.

The green circle is a fine example of how to use green screen to elminate needless set modification. (No extra sawing, measuring, sweating...) I put these circles here to have light showing through these doors, when really there is a solid wall (covered with tile, no less!) behind it. I take a seperate pass of the same shot, lit bright and even, so the green will register. Then in Final Cut Pro, I remove the green with the nifty Chroma Key filter. Then inside the hole the filter creates, I will probabaly place a nice ultra bright light glaring through into the dimly lit room. Who knows, maybe I'll stick a Gargon behind those windows!
