This is what happens when I don’t use a green screen.
I’d just gotten a copy of Sony Vegas Jr., and I was excited to try out it’s chroma-key function. That’s the cool toy that lets a video maker (there’s no way I’m calling myself a “filmmaker”) to remove the background and replace it with something else.
To do chroma-keying correctly, I need a studio-quality green screen, with proper lighting, a good camera with excellent resolution, and the patience to manually rotoscope any details that don’t turn out correctly.
All that? Pfffft. That’s not the ghettotastic way.
Nope, I just used the white call of my apartment complex, a cheap VGA-quality video camera, and turned to blur function on Vegas waaaaaay up.
The result is priceless (in that it’s worth no price at all):
