This is a fun reel, showing how heavily chroma keying is used in productions. It also has a very soothing score, a song called “Lionheart,” from Emancipator’s album “Soon it will be cold enough.”
One of the things I like about this video is that the creator, Stargate Studios (who has made effects sequences for dozens of television shows, films, and other commercial video projects), makes it so easy to find the music. Also that Emancipator makes it so easy to buy their albums and individual songs from their own website. You know, and that the effects house is called Stargate.
Today I went out at lunchtime looking for something you don’t see every day. I didn’t have a lot of time, so I was surprised when I found it.
I mean, I’m sure some people see this every day. It’s just not a common sight over in the little square near my office.
