We make our (hopefully!) final trip to IKEA to buy some new office storage units. I also pick up a lime green shower curtain that looked like it could come in pretty handy as a green screen. Check out the test at the end where I head off around the world to New York, Hawaii and the Swiss Alps!

The green screen magic was simply created in iMovie09; I’m tempted to look into Final Cut to see if there’s any more advanced settings to play with!

    How slick is that. Green screen all the way!

  8. Haha excellent! You could do some pretty easy editing with that if you ever need to photograph your own objects for a design too! Great find! ;)

  9. Thanks for the comments everyone!

    @Chris – Cool! The Nottingham one is usually our first choice, but we’re also pretty close to the Leeds branch too.

    @John @Arron @Remus @Meredith @Shannon @Chris @Callum – Thanks all! Should work out pretty well with some tweaks. Tempted to wear my green t-shirt too for some creepy effects :-)
