Ever wondered why in a TV studio of even OB shots, the camera is around 6 to 8 feet away from the person being interviewed? It is because that is roughly the distance between your sofa and your TV. You are looking at somebody talking to you in a box on the other side of your room so if they don't look as though they are that far away, it will look wrong. That is another consideration.

All of The Big Bang Theory was filmed in front of a live audience so it makes perfect sense that they used green screens instead of moving around.

I've binge watching Tom's content for a couple days and last night Tom was in my dream. I don't remember much but Tom had a presentation of some sort for my old class in my old school. No idea what the presentation was about because I woke up laughing after Tom had in a crowded class room somehow found a chair and said "hey I found a free chair for someone" and proceeded to sit down on it. Thank you Tom for invading my dreams. You're the best. No seriously love your content :)

hmmm.... how we can recognize things? it seems easy to explain, but how we can recognize that a rock its not looks that tasty like a cake? and something that has life and something that doesnt? how we can recognize a person on an animated show? why we can have terror in something lifeless? idk, but i dont need sleep, i need answers! its 5 am and im still thinking about that.

Another GREAT tip is to use ALL pixels in your cam. Suppose you are recording in 1080p. that's 1920X1080 pixels. Clearly you have more pixel horizontally than vertically. So...

fun fact that effecting gaurndeains of the galaxys is called a dolly zoom. where the camera move backwards and is being zoomed in. it looks weird beacase of the difference between shrinking the shutter of a camera to zoom, and moveing the camera back

Would be interesting to do a follow-up on the alternatives to greenscreen. Things such as the Unreal Engine ILM StageCraft that was used for the Mandalorian

Another GREAT tip is to use ALL pixels in your cam. Suppose you are recording in 1080p. that's 1920X1080 pixels. Clearly you have more pixel horizontally than vertically. So... to record it the camera or phone on vertical would give you a lot more pixel density, the more pixels you have, the better the keying would be. Of course, if you have an 4K camera, USE IT!

On a recent episode of Better Call Saul, a car was gunning toward Jimmy in the desert. Obviously Bob Odenkirk couldn't really be in frame during such a dangerous stunt, so they had to use a green screen. They solved all the problems presented in the video by shooting the green screen on the actual location using the same camera setup and and the sun for lighting.
