Green Screens and behind the scenes

Bunny is my little dog. She is seen here on the green screen cyclorama. Camera testing with animals is a fun yet trying experience. After getting Bunny to be comfortable on the cloth, we found out that she is so white on her chest that she was actually reflecting the green! This makes it almost impossible to do a proper composite background later in post production.

You see, the green will bleed the background video or image onto her body. Not the desired effect. So, turns out we will likely have to go with a blue screen to do any shots with her. Good thing our new screen will be blue!

We hope to share our video with Bunny in another acting video. Real soon I hope!

Sunrise

Sunrise is an event that tells us another day is upon us. From darkness lines and shapes form up until reality returns.

This morning something came before the sun to wake me. Rain.

The recent forest fires here in western Canada have taken their toll not only on thousands of hectares of forest, but also have spread a brown pall over the sky. The rain is extremely necessary to clean the air.

Maybe, just maybe, my eyes will stop burning soon… until then, this sliver of the sun peeking out between the strata of clouds is what I will share with you this fine Saturday morning.

S01 E01 Martin at the Crossroads – YouTube

Here it is, the YouTube version of S01 E01 of Martin at the Crossroads!

The show is somewhat basic in production. In any case, the content is most important. Chelsea was a wonderful guest. Her story warmed my heart from the first time I heard it. I hope to spend more time at the tribal centre in future. The ‘Big House’ is a special place for me now. I’m happy that it is just minutes away from where I live.

For the production stsrting in September I hope to have a new intro and some graphics included in  the show.

Enjoy!
