Chroma Keying
Shooting either "on location" or in a studio? Both options are expensive! Searching for the right location is time consuming and the owners may not be amenable to providing the access you need. Building the set in the studio is a major task. When studio hire rates are considered, time is of the essence. Chroma keying offers an alternative - film your actors against a plain green background which is replaced in post production with a background of your choice.
Often the backgrounds will be a still image. But there are other exciting possibilities such as leveraging the creativity of a computer game to provide action backgrounds and stimulate the narrative flow. From wikipaedia: Machinima is the use of real-time computer graphics engines to create a cinematic production. Most often, video games are used to generate the computer animation. Here is an aviation related comedy that Video Foundry has created using X-Plane 11. The video was selected for the London Lift-Off Online film festival in 2018, and received a "Highly Commended" award in another competition that year.
