Clones in the Snow
This evening I realized I’ve been working way too hard lately, so I decided to have some fun instead.
Ever since I was a little kid I was always mesmerized by video editing and video effects, but I never really had a chance to get into video editing until recently.
Since launching my Paulymath channels on YouTube I’ve been spending some time learning how to make videos.
However, in the last month or so I’ve really stepped it up. In fact in the last two weeks alone I’ve produced more videos than in the last 12 months.
Most of them have been for my Paulymath Mentorship Club, but tonight I wanted to play around with this cheap make-shift green screen I got from IKEA.
I basically just got a green flat sheet like this for under $20 and hung it up against the wall. I tried finding something made up of a softer, less-wrinkly material while I was there but I couldn’t find anything and after about 20 minutes of looking I got bored of walking around their giant showroom.
Anyway, after playing around with my lighting and stretching the green screen as much as I could to remove shadows and wrinkles I was able to get a semi-decent keying effect going.
Here’s a short clip I put together with the footage I captured.
Sorry, I totally forgot to add sound to it.
Once I get a real green screen and proper lighting setup I’ll be able to do a lot cooler stuff than this.
