Ventura, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2010

If you want to make movies with green screen compositing technology, The Green Screen Handbook, written by author, producer and motion graphics specialist Jeff Foster, is just for you. Published by Sybex (Wiley) this unique guide is a comprehensive how-to of professional production techniques, step-by-step instruction, and tips that can save you time and money. Learn when to use green screens instead of blue, find out how the pros operate in professional studios and get amazing results–even on a shoestring budget.

Topics include matting and keying basics; setups using fabric, portable background panels, or paint; lighting and digital camera essentials; broadcast TV hardware switchers; professional HD and major motion picture compositing; multiple-colored screen composites (background, foregrounds, and objects); directing storyboards and talent; working with virtual sets; motion tracking; and much more. A DVD accompanies the book that includes sample footage and all project files for each chapter.

According to Foster, “No one yet has provided this kind of extensive information that combines historical research, practical application, accurate lighting, shooting and set up in one book. My passion for this subject combined with twenty years experience hopefully has resulted in a project that will raise the level of green screen production from the novice to the professional.”

The Green Screen Handbook retails for $ 49.99 US and is available at and distributed through book retailers worldwide.
