Green screen guidelines

[su_youtube url=””]

So you’re about to shoot a green screen video. Green screen is easy but there are a simple few things to keep in mind:

  • Don’t wear green (any shade) and don’t wear anything with a tight, intricate pattern (it’ll look psychedelic during playback).
  • Avoid anything with a big logo unless it’s your logo or something directly related to your business (EX – your brokerage or one of your suppliers).
  • Jewelery is fine but keep in mind that anything jangly or dangly will likely get picked up by your microphone. Basics like a wrist watch or a wedding band are great but we suggest not going full Mr. T.
  • With hair, the goal is to keep it under control. Any puffy styling could result in green screen challenges.
  • Don’t worry about memorizing the script. We’ve got a teleprompter you can use.

When you arrive, we’ll get you set up with a mic and shoot a little test footage. It typically goes quite quickly – from the time you walk in to the time you walk out should be 45 minutes to an hour. It’s very casual.
