Virtual Productions are more common in today's media environment-Crewsouth in Montgomery, Alabama
Recently, we had an opportunity to film a virtual production with Usher and the Global Citizen award recipient, Bryan Stevenson, in honor of his work with the Equal Justice Initiative. We were on location with Mr. Stevenson at EJI in Montgomery, Alabama filming on a 9’x20’ green screen. Usher was in a remote location interviewing Stevenson via a Zoom call through a laptop.
To make this happen, every detail had to be pre-produced. We took exact measurements for camera placements, lighting, and matched focal lengths with the other crew so that Stevenson’s placement alongside Usher would look authentic. We provided the team of producers with a “virtual video village” in real time displaying all three of our cameras with a professional audio feed. After a little post-production magic, the interview came together seamlessly and we couldn’t have been happier about the final result.
