    This video demonstrates how InstaBackgrounds royalty-free video clips can be used as realistic-looking backgrounds for chroma key interviews and other types of headshots. Get more information: http://InstaBackgrounds.com InstaBackgrounds can put high-quality interview setups with sophisticated lighting and shallow depth-of-field within reach of anyone – regardless of your camera, budget, or shooting location. Royalty-free InstaBackgrounds plates are designed to match the style of interviews that you see on high-end PBS documentaries, such as Frontline, and the best network news magazines such as 60 Minutes, 20/20, and Dateline NBC. No matter what your budget is or what kind of camera you use, now you can give your clients that same level of production quality with virtually no extra effort on your part.Green screen interview Think about the power and flexibility of being able to shoot an interview anywhere, at anytime, and make it look totally different in post. Why 4K? Every InstaBackground 4K image has more than four-times the resolution of 1080P and more than nine-times the resolution of 720P. So that means that if you’re editing with an HD timeline -- but using a 4K (4096x2160) image for your background -- you can zoom-in and change the scaling of the background, pan the background to adjust the framing, or simply use it full-screen -- all with perfectly pristine image quality --because it's a 4K video clip. Of course, if you still prefer HD (1920x1080), all of our clips are available in that resolution as well.
