The Digital Design Summer Intensive continued today with students getting guidance and direction from Digital Design’s Digital Media Specialist Danny Chan and Senior Instructor Kyle Norby for video shooting their superhero/villain poses against a Green Screen. Danny Started off with some basic information about Green Screen techniques and technology, and made recommendations for clothing colour, set lighting, and camera framing. He also included some good tips, such as the virtues of using Video cameras over SLR cameras for shooting Green Screen.
Everybody really came alive during the production shoot, doing some great and sometimes hilarious poses.
Later in the afternoon, Kyle gave them a good introduction to After Effects — walking them through the chroma keying process with their material. Stay tuned to the oomph blog to keep up with their transformation into Superheroes (and super designers). We’ll be posting images from their Motion Design work as we go along.
