Painting with Light | mycustomcruises
Merchant Cantos leased our video studio for a multi-camera shoot for PWC (Cost Waterhouse Coopers) in March. The shoot belonged to an on going video series; so the videos should all look the exact same. The previous videos were shot on green screen and editors typed in a gradient background. However, PWC desired to lower post production expense by avoiding prompt green screen keying. So they decided to custom light our white cyc to match the previous gradated background utilized in the green screen composite. Seems simple enough, right? Numerous attempts at individually masking each of the offered 1K area lights produced numerous gradations on the background (see the image below).
