Reviews

"This book has been my go-to source for many years before planning a green screen shoot. Jeff's tips and tricks on lighting, background paint, material choices, codec choices, color space, and much more have helped me countless times. It's a resource that I give to my own field staff as well as recommend to our Creative Cloud Pro Video customers for the best possible keying results in our Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe After Effects CC applications."- David K Helmly, Adobe Systems, Inc, Sr. Manager Strategic Development Pro Video/Audio Americas"This book isn't a safety net. It teaches you how to work without one. This is very, very good, because-in the fast-paced world of production-nets aren't often provided. Unless you're very good at bouncing, I strongly suggest you read this book."- Art Adams, Director of Photography, ProVideoCoalition.com, DVInfo.net
