Green screen (or chroma key) videos are videos in which there is an area with a uniform and particular color, usually green. This area can be easily replaced, in post production, with videos or images of your choice. Examples might include the following:

  • A video with a woman’s smiling face in the foreground and a completely green background behind it. In this case, during video editing, you can replace the background with a background of your choice, such as a place or product you want to advertise or a message you want to convey to the viewer.
  • A video with a man holding a smartphone in the foreground whose screen, facing the camera, is completely green. In this case, during video editing, you can replace the contents of the smartphone screen with whatever you want, such as the app you want to advertise.
Examples of green screen / chroma key footage

Thanks to these techniques of replacing the background or other elements by “chroma key”, while starting from generic stock videos that are often very inexpensive, you can easily obtain fully customized videos with the products, logos, or messages you want. Using green screen footage thus often leads to savings in both money and time compared to commissioning a video from scratch from a videographer who has to take care of everything.
