Greenscreen Studio Filming & Production Services Overview

Greenscreen Studios Overview

Filming against greenscreen (chroma key) allows the video maker to combine different images to create one. It is used right across the spectrum of filmmaking from simple talking-head ‘pieces to camera’ and explainer videos to special effects masterpieces.

Greenscreen Studio in Camberwell

Camberwell Studios has over ten years experience in both operating and using greenscreen studios. Both studios are set up as green as standard (although we can repaint to white and drape to blackout with some arrangement).

We have lights in place and regularly supply kit and crew, from Directors of Photography, Operators and Lighting Specialists to Production Assistants and Runners. You can find out more about our services, here.
