Thank you! Last time I did serious greenscreening was with stop motion animation, so shooting myself singing and then compositing was not easy.

Good point about the puppets lighting. Originally everyone including myself was in the blue tint so it was more uniform, but had a lot of comments about the red dress...so I kept the red dress in, but yeah, messed up the lighting some. There were a ton of takes, but I ended up only using the first two. Pretty easy set up, and adding in the shadow that fell against the back wall really added the realism, I thought. Was challenging figuring out how to match the angles and the live shots. Ended up just going with a few basic set ups. There were some close-ups, too, but I had done a crazy makeup job that didn't look good on camera, so opted out of adding those in as overlays.

I'm hoping to make more of these "concerts" with Moviestorm. I wrote the music, hired a musician to play the guitar part, and then performed/sung the rest. It's kinda fun, if a little more time consuming!

Would love to chat more about this. So any more comments are appreciated. :)

Trying out Greenscreening, this was the first one that I have done. Would like to hear your thoughts. And yeah, that's my voice. :)

Bought a green screen kit and photography lighting. Set it up in my dining room. Used characters from Libertaria (who now have their own band, industrious little virtual buggers aren't they?) and then set up shots from various angles trying to match the scenes in Moviestorm.

Compositing in Final Cut Express, old version. Had some probs with the lighting and shadows, so not truly able to chroma key out everything. Then added some filters for the bluish tint. My fans said they liked the red dress (originally was bluish as I was playing around with the idea of being a ghost), so kept in the red dress. Hoping to do more of these in the future.

First green screen attempt with Machinima using Moviestorm. Blues.

Lyrics to Baby Blues:
My Man Done Left Me
My Man Done Left Me
High and Dry with a Babe in My Belly
Oh he left me
With a babe in my belly, oh
Gotta, gotta tell my momma and my papa that their little girl's been done wrong, Yeah
