Green Screen Keying with Cub Scouts

Example of Green Screen Keying

Savvyon was recently asked to take photos of Cub Scouts in Pack 333 during the Pinewood Derby. We setup in the venue with camera equipment, a computer for green screen keying and a green screen. As all the Scouts came in they were photographed with their Pinewood Derby cars in front of the green screen.  The whole process was a great chance to give back to the community and do something fun.  Not that we don’t have fun designing websites for our clients!  We created over 17 life-like magazine covers which would be used as a backdrop once we removed the green screen from the background. The parents could choose from the 17 backgrounds and they would receive one free 8×10 image.  They could also choose all the images we took on a CD for $25, all of the proceeds went to Pack 333.  After figuring out that our camera’s auto-focus was not set (rookie mistake) we finally managed to get all the boys pictures taken with their cars and trophies and then it was time for some magic to occur.  We did green screen keying on all the photos and then placed the photos in the magazine covers (see example image). The results were awesome and it was tremendously satisfying to have helped out the Cub Scouts in Pack 333.
