Set extensions – Extend the boundaries of your real life set by using digital effects.
Digital crowds – Think epic battle scenes with thousands of virtual soldiers, or a huge crowd at a concert.
3D modelling – Create computer generated characters, 3D muzzle flashes and procedural fire.
Green screen studio work – Add backgrounds and backdrops (both indoor and outdoor scenes) to footage filmed on a green screen.
Stereoscopic 3D production – ‘Stereoscopic’ refers to footage which has been shot both from two different angles (from a ‘left eye’ perspective and a ‘right eye’ perspective), then combined in post production to produce an image which appears as though it is has depth and texture, and is protruding from the screen.
Real life footage – can also be corrected by removing a blemish from someone’s face or an entire building from a cityscape shot.

Commonly shortened to digital FX or FX are the various processes by which imagery is created and/or manipulated with or from photographic assets. Digital effects often involve the integration of still photography and computer-generated imagery (CGI) to create environments which look realistic, but would be dangerous, costly, or impossible to capture in camera. Simulation Effects are usually associated with the imitation of  real-world processes or systems over time. The act of simulating something first requires that a 3D model be developed; this model represents the key characteristics or behaviors/functions of the selected physical or abstract system or process.

Green Screen Compositing

A chroma key, or more commonly known as a ‘Green Screen’ is the process of filming in front of a particular type of green screen and then superimposing an image or graphic into the background in place of the green colour. This may be done simultaneously at the time of filming such as in the case of a live news broadcast or weather report, or in post-production such as in big feature films or TV series, where large special effects teams including animators and motion graphics artists will superimpose the necessary photographic or video background plates as well as Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) into the scene.

One of our most common questions when shooting with a green screen is ‘why is the colour green used, and not another colour like red or purple?’ Green and even blue backgrounds are almost always used because they differ in hue from most human skin colours, which help ensure that your actors or talent, appear fully on screen without mysteriously missing arms or heads in the final editing process.

Why Use Green Screen?

3 Major benefits of using green screens in video production include:

 1. Creative options

During the post-production phase, green screen allows for virtually unlimited options

2. Simplicity of scene production

Reducing the need for additional location scouting

3. Time saving

Green screen video production is not restricted to a certain time of day.

Shooting with a green screen allows your video production to have virtually unlimited creativity options in the post-production process. Green screens offer you the ability to superimpose imagery and backgrounds into your video with ease, whether you would like a detailed background environment or something as simple as your company logo. For a corporate video, green screens provide you with a creative platform for visually enhancing your speaker’s message and illustrating your spoken points with imagination.
As a part of our services as a video production company we can shoot you or your talent in front of a green screen here on the Gold Coast.
Green screen rates are often determined by the length of time you need to shoot for
and what other facilities you need to use at our studio,such as lighting or sound equipment hire.
