I create visual effects and music for film and TV projects.
I recently graduated with a first from Edge Hill University where I studied Film and TV Production.

So I’ve been handed a bunch of shots that are quite difficult to key and track for various reasons, this is one of them. Uneven greenscreen (over exposed, orange cast from lights and wrinkled) green spill/reflections and of course the biggest issue, compression artifacts from a canon dslr.

So far I’ve roughly keyed parts, you can’t tell from the stills but it’s an 8 second shot with quite a bit of camera movement. There is also a camera operator who creeps in and out (to the right) during the shot.

It looks a lot easier than it is.
