First ChromaKey attempt
Chromakey: technical term for "greenscreen" special effects...where you film on a solid color background (green or blue) and then remove the background and replace with something else (compositing).
Myself and a coworker (Jason) put this together late Friday night. Its basically testing my greenscreen to see if the color is usable.

Lighting was far from perfect, and we only used Premieres built-in chromakey...After Effects does a much better job...yet the overall results were amazingly good!
Also, its is supposed to go black for a couple seconds...just to prove this is greenscreening. (you don't see the greenscreen because it remains transparent throughout the clip)
I'll put up some more experiments as soon as my firewire card starts working again. Unfortunately, I think its all Windows XP's fault...and I'll have to reinstall XP.
