Film Riot Christmas Wishes

By on October 17, 2016

Click Here For the Best Green Screen & Lighting Kit Deals!

After having seen the awesome Christmas Special of the Film Riot crew, I decided to quickly send them some wishes and greetings.

The emphasis here being "quickly". It took me about an hour to produce the video – greenscreen, lighting and editing included. Also I did not have my external mic with me and there was terrible reverb in the room. So don't judge me too harshly…

Thanks a lot to Film Riot, and if you haven't already, check out their channel:

Caprica Halloween – A Film Riot Extra Project

Here's my take on Ryan's creepy Halloween video. It was made with FxHome Hit Film Ultimate. I had some trouble with keying the green screen. It's not perfect but I hope Brian and Josh like being in an episode of Battlestar Galactica!
