Greenscreen Studio Filming & Production Services Overview


Greenscreen filming long ago become a common tool available for everyone from Hollywood to the corporate video. Its role in every aspect of filming will continue as the innovative canvas for 3D virtual production techniques including Unreal Engine and photo realism, artificial Intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality.

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.

Greenscreen Production Skills

Greenscreen filming has been a mainstay of the production business for a long time now. The technology and tools are well established. Creative practitioners, from cameramen, gaffers, art department to post-production abound.

Music videos, animations, puppetry, presentations and pieces to camera are just some of the popular reasons why clients choose to film using green. It’s a case of imagination

Since covid entered our world, greenscreen has taken on a new meaning, in particular becoming a mainstay of live streams and remote productions. Geographical location no longer matters and even our small Studio 2 can seem like the largest conference centre.


Virtual Production, driven by the Unreal Engine gaming software will enter the mainstream and become a reliable and affordable option for most commercial video and film production companies.

The need for big expensive real sets built for one day of filming and then thrown away the next day will reduce. As will flying an entire film crew to a remote location for a shoot. You can do it in the studios in regular business hours.

Over the course of 2021 we plan to install a Virtual Production Suite, meaning you can bring your 3D designed environments, import them into the system and start filming, in camera, live, to final pixel state. We mean it to be as straightforward as that.
