Our Green Screen

At a recent Q & A, we were asked about digital effects in the movie. There are probably three or four very minor moments, things that needed smoothing out but hopefully go unnoticed... but we did have one green screen shot, which sorta makes it Deadgirl's most complex digital effect.

Here's the hospital we needed to show the boys approaching.
But it was the last day of production, and we were out in the middle of nowhere. So we filmed Shiloh and Noah against a green screen.
A quick test showed us that this might actually work.
Then it just took some time to finesse, including making the building look even crappier. Voila, a much-needed establishing shot.
