Can’t We Just Put Up A Portable Green Screen In Our Office?
Occasionally we get asked this question and strongly advise against it. You might be thinking “why? Don’t plenty of YouTubers and the like do videos like that?” While some may, many if the most successful influencers have their own production teams and even purpose built facilities. For the smaller ones who do not, this more DIY approach is more acceptable as they are often putting out regular content where the quality is not the primary focus. However, while this is ok on a predominantly social platform it is not a good look for promoting your business. If you are trying to promote your brand, the sound, lighting and location of your video needs care and consideration. Let’s look at each point more in depth.
When it comes to Sound, recording video productions with the green screen in your office will often contain disruptive background noises caused by colleagues working around the office, etc.
Lighting a green screen can be an art in itself, even in a professional studio environment. So, you can only imagine how difficult it would be to light a custom green screen in an office. The major advantage of why recording video production is superior in a professional studio is because we can control all the variables in the location compared to a custom green screen in an office. This is critical because if the green screen is incorrectly lit, it can create massive problems in post production that can result in huge time and money outlay.
In terms of location, filming in an office with a green screen isn’t ideal as often other colleagues will still see the presenter as being present and available. This causes interruptions and lessens focus resulting in an inferior product to what might have been achieved if the talent was purely focused on the filming and their delivery. It also typically makes other staff less productive as they more interested in watching the filming and making jokes, etc about their colleague being in front of camera.
