New videos for LockState: Remote Lock

Here are a couple more videos I recently produced for LockState, a Denver-based company that makes remote-controlled door locks and other high-tech home security products. I also have a cameo at approximately 2:30 in the first video. Though, if you ask me, I probably shouldn’t consider switching my career from the back to the front of the camera just yet!

One of the cool things about this project is that it was the first time I had worked with a green screen for a client-commissioned video. I’ve worked as an AC or camera operator on film and music video shoots where a green screen was used, but I never served as the actual editor or green screen compositor on those projects. So, it was a fun learning experience to work on the opening sequence in this video, where a door opens and you see a grid of video screens behind it.

We set up a makeshift green screen behind a door at LockState offices and I filmed the door opening, revealing the green screen behind it. In Final Cut Pro, I created a grid of video segments from scratch (there may have been an easier way to do it with a specialized plugin of some sort, but I didn’t have time or the resources to look for one), which I then composited into the green screen portion of the shot using the Chroma Key tool. It looks like a relatively simple shot in the video, but it took me a while to get it right.
