Special Trade Class: VFX Basics for Script Supervisors
You're on a film set that doesn't have a VFX Supervisor. The camera is setting up to do an insert shot of a cell phone and rumor is they plan to put the graphics in post. Or maybe you're on a full green screen set and they're asking you if they need tracking marks.
Knowing how to approach a shot like this can mean a world of difference for post production. This course will cover the basics of VFX, using Green Screens, and how to give the best information on set to production and what details to have in our notes.
The class will include samples of projects that did it wrong and right.
This class is taught by both Roe Moore and Motion Graphics/VFX artist Ben Budzak.

When should they keep the screen completely clear to avoid rotoscoping or when they may need to mask parts of the shot?
What notes should you be taking? Your answers will be found in this class.
What do I put in my notes?
Is it really important to have thorough notes for post-production? Why do they need the angle of the camera? Gain insights of how the post production team uses this information to create the final shot.
Should we put markers?
Sometimes it's not 100% clear whether an shot needs to have tracking marks or not. Learn what to look for on set when it comes to camera movements and objects that need VFX.
Rotoscoping, Masking, Oh my!
Is it a problem if an actor doesn't clear the green screen?
