Perhaps you've seen websites that feature an on screen guide who walks onto your computer (usually at the bottom of the screen). We will be filming Monday for just that purpose. The trick to creating that effect is to film against a green backdrop, and then key out the green background later in post-production. The goal is to be able to see the website behind the guide and not solid green or white. Green screen video can be tricky, but with solid, continuous lighting on the screen, proper separation of the the talent from the screen, and good keying software, it can be done successfully.

I am a digital film major at the Ringling College of Art and Design. I have a project where I have to create a "Walk On" of a talent selling a product on a website. I have a lot of experience with greenscreen shooting and editing (this may seem like a dumb question) but how do you edit so it is just the talent, nothing else in the frame but it matches the website background?
