I was filming at a Stagecoach school yesterday and a young chap from one of the groups I was filming had gone to a lot of effort with his green Grinch costume and green facepaint. Unfortunately as we were filming the scene on a green screen this presented something of a challenge – basically he would almost completely disappear.
Not wanting to discourage the efforts of this enthusiastic young fellow I decided to do the thing all good filmmakers should be prepared to do – improvise. The blinds in the classroom were blue so I flipped the lights around and filmed him separately in front of those. Worked a treat.
