CHROMAFEST

Chromafest was an all day exercise to investigate all aspects of chromakey technique in a controlled and scientific manner.


We looked for the answer to one very basic question:

Is there a procedure whereby we amateur filmmakers can achieve a good chromakey result without having to use equipment and software we cannot afford.


The results will be presented at our next meeting.

MAKE UP DEMONSTRATION or
GORE BLIMEY! IT'S BURNS NIGHT!

Lisa-Maria Thomas from City of Bristol College treated us to an excellent demonstration of make up for film, including a vampire mask and the blood and gore of a major burn. Losing a nail was not a painful experience for one club member even though it looked like it!
