Green screen, our secret ingredient for our holiday video shoot

Video Production Insights of executing on a Holiday video concept with the Green screen


As a video production company in Boston, we came up with a series of Christmas videos with the use of green screen.  Green Screen was a tool that’s commonly used for these types of shoots. It was important that we picked the right image for the backdrop to give it that right look. and lit the studio well. Again a shoot heavily dependent on the green screen, even lighting is key (pardon the video editing pun) in filming. We went with the oversize softbox to ensure that the green screen was evenly lit and give the talent and background that necessary pop when it’s online. Especially when we wanted to play up the fact we were using a green screen when we gave a surprise change that hopefully folks will “roar” with laughter.

Also, these videos were a parody, tongue, and cheek of those old Xmas specials, named after me. “The Rob Lee Christmas special” What’s great about this format, is the opportunity to do music research of finding a catchy tune with that right nostalgic holiday feel. Once we selected the music we had to make sure the look went with music.  So we had to dig hard in the archives to find the right backdrop scene we had to use. We couldn’t go too old school of scenes (such as black and white or dated material from the early 1900s)  that younger generation may not appreciate but a right blend of familiarity and nostalgic. (If that makes sense) Once we found the right mix then it’s time to light up the green screen and start filming.

Think we need more light in the shoot

That looks better with the background image.


Again, the whole purpose was to celebrate the holidays, poke fun at ourselves and indirectly convey that making videos is not a scary thing, and it’s ok to have fun. If you don’t believe us, watch the video(s) and let us know. Even better if you made some for your business and like to share with us your experience or even your videos yourself, we’d love to hear about it. 🙂

Oh and Happy Holidays and here’s to a great 2017!!!
