TV gets way more green screening than you thought

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Home Entertainment, Videos,

The Stargate Studios virtual backlot reel video above does a great job at showing off just how many virtual sets are used in television shows. We aren’t just talking about intense action scenes either, because a lot of what’s featured is just people walking around on a city sidewalk. Interesting and eye-opening, to say the least.

Video: TV Envy Interviews 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, 30 Rock, Features,


We were able to chat with ‘s (Jenna on the show) earlier today to talk about tonight’s 30 Rock season finale. Jane gives us a teaser on what to expect in the Season 3 finale, and also tells us what it’s like to work with so many world-class comedians on a day-to-day basis. We also go into some of her work on the Breyers Smooth and Dreamy promotion, where she has shot a couple of webisodes that put her into classical movies as a modern-day woman (and they’re pretty funny.)

Check out the video above for the interview, and head on over to the Smooth and Dreamy site to enter to win a very cool Dreamy Hollywood package, which includes an 8 day trip for 4 to Hollywood, CA. Once again, we thank Jane for taking some time to chat with us today!


Reach Out and Touch Yourself

Meet one of the first interactive mixed reality humanoid robots. Put on a special HMD (head-mounted display) and U-Tsu-Shi-O-Mi appears as an animated character that you can literally touch. The 3D avatar is made with skin that acts as a green screen and as users adjust their head angle and position, so does the robot. Created by Michihiko Shoji, the plans are for U-Tsu-Shi-O-Mi to enhance existing virtual reality and its first application will probably be in arcades, with household usage to come later. This brings on a whole new meaning of self-communication, doesn’t it?
