View Full Version : Stephen Colbert entry on TV

In case anyones interested here's a vid of my piece for the greenecreen challenge as it aired on his show. You can see his reaction to my vid if you missed it on TV. It was a thrill having the funniest man on tv give me a shout out......
The video is posted in my gallery, it may take a few minutes to download. Feel free to leave comments in my guestbook.

video is here....

It's also on my siteunder the movie section....

thats awesome!

kudos to steven colbert for such a great idea.

and you did a good job dude. funny stuff.

just out of interest, did you utilize the greenscreen or just roto every frame?

Thanks for the comments. I used both colour keying to remove the greenscreen and rotoscoped some parts where the greenscreen removal took out either too much or too little. When he rolls around on the floor dodging laser fire required the most rotoscoping. Because Colbert was moving fast in that shot he had a motion blur and the colour removal tended to erase too much of Colbert along with the green.
