Green screens are ruining Hollywood.
That might be a bit dramatic. As you’ll soon see, the green screen was about the only good part of Final Destination 5. But by and large, they’re ruining my romanticized memories of Hollywood’s most iconic scenes. And that grinds my gears.
I sifted through endless pages of searches like “movie magic revealed” to bring you the crème de la crème of green screen shots and cinematic tricks of the trade that are sure to leave you questioning if anything in Hollywood is real anymore. Hey, it could be worse, you could be the extras that dress up in green outfits and manipulate backgrounds. I don’t think those people even make the credits.
This scene may be green screened but Heath Ledger’s acting was as real as it gets.
