Dr. Molly Barrow relationship expert and author of Matchlines films at FGCU PBS Studio

Dr. Molly Barrow was asked by My Suicide and Disney star Gabe Sunday and director David Miller to shoot a pick-up shot of her holding her book Matchlines: A Revolutionary New Way of Looking at Relationships and Making the Right Choices in Love for the Los Angeles based teen film My Suicide. Dr. Barrow play herself, a psychotherapist in the film. This shot required Dr. Barrow to stand in front of a blue screen, a film technique that allows only the person to be seen and all the background to disappear.

"Basically, in this technique a subject is shot in front of a green or blue screen, which is then made transparent and replaced by a different background image or video. This gives you a combined video containing images from both clips. A good example is the weather reports shown on television. The video is created by combining a video with an animation. The video shows weatherman standing in front of a green screen while the animation displays maps and graphics. The green background of the video is made transparent and replaced by the animation" (www.deskshare.com)

Later, edititors in Los Angeles will add a background to create the complete scene. This tricky shot needed to broadcast quality audio and video production. The professionals at WGCU-TV had the equipment and knowledge to do this shot.

Once the shot was prepared with the blue screen however, the crew pointed out that the royal blue cover of Dr. Molly's book also would disappear, defeating the purpose. The competent staff and crew of FGCU/PBS Studio quickly re-draped the shot with a green screen to solve the problem. Thank you to Sheri Coleman, Production Manager, WGCU-TV, Antonio Rodriguez, Senior Broadcast Specialist, Tim McCarthy, Sr Computer Support Specialist and all the staff for an excellent and fun shoot.
