I’ve uploaded the sixth installment of Lost Wizard’s Musings. Head on over to Lost Wizard Enterprises Incorporated’s channel to see it and the previous five.
For anyone wondering why I don’t just write blog entries for them, I’m using them as a means to learn more about video production. This one is an experiment with the good old fashioned chroma key type effect, otherwise known as blue or green screen. So far, my conclusion is that to do a really good green screen effect, I need a much better quality camera – something that doesn’t introduce nearly so much noise into the image. Still, since I can’t afford to buy one, I’ll have to make do with what I have and put up with that funky fringe effect around my hair, though I expect I could reduce that with some hair spray or something.
I think I need to start writing scripts ahead of time, too. I might even want to consider some sort of teleprompter. This winging it business leaves way to much editing and fixup in post production.
