Tips On Shooting Bluescreen Characters:

Turn your DV camera sideways to get maximum resolution when shooting standing characters on a bluescreen. A fan was placed next to Irena, to make her look more a part of the final 3D desert set, which is full of blowing red flags. Notice the way the bluescreen actor is framed to fit completely in the shot. If you cut off any area of the body, you will be more limited in how you can use the character as a separate layer against virtual sets. Aim to light your bluescreen so there are no hot spots or shadows, just an even flat blue color that will be easy to key out and select in post.
