CBS 2 Chicago is on the search for a new traffic reporter. One of my close family friend's Danielle Sorresso is trying out and we submitted this 30-second video for the contest. CBS ultimately decides the winner but Danielle has a shot at a 100k salary.

This was my second time using green screen (actually, a white blanket). On my first attempt with my brother's video, I didn't light the background properly and had to do a couple 8-point garbage mattes. This time I pointed the flood lights at the blanket, instead of using them to light the subject. Chroma Keying in FCP was pretty flawless and I only had to do one garbage matte. I don't have any proper lighting equipment so I used four 100-watt desk lamps to light Danielle. I think it came out pretty good though. Unfortunately, I deleted the one behind the scenes I had but the set up was very similar to my brother's shoot - twitpic.com/45kf2w and twitpic.com/45kf4m
