In this learning activity I was encourage to make my own green screen background. Also I was asked to produce as a training exercise my own Apple iPod advertisement, similar in style to the one shown here Mary J. Blige – iPod + iTunes Ad
The sequence should be cut to any music track of my choice, It should be 30 seconds in length, It must have an animated background and It needs to use colour graded and keyed footage.
This is the modest result. I face some limitations in hardware both from lightning and from computer.
Getting the location ready and setting up green screen
By covering the wall with a fabric close enough to 354C in the Pantone color. Getting the actors ready and confident
Making the iPod touch packaging
Covering some old mobile phone boxes with the new packaging. Printer ran out of ink though but I got a really nice tree effect on the cover 🙂
