Lighting techniques 2: Lighting for greenscreen

In this tutorial Eve Hazelton shows how you should set up the lighting for filming (someone in front of) a greenscreen and gives you some tips and tricks on how to get it right (visiting the actual location and looking at the lighting there for instance). The second part of the tutorial includes adjusting the recording with editing software to make it all seem realistic, without flaws giving away the greenscreen. A summary in screenshots and photographs and a bit more information also gives you an idea of the tutorial.
