Green Screen Magic

Published by Steve De'ak on

This is an example of Green Screen technology.

Please watch the below promo, and pay attention to the image of the burning boat.

Here are some screen captures of the scene:



Here’s the Promo:

If that scene was presented with an accompanying news story, and broadcast on national news, would you believe it had actually occurred?

Sure you would.

All it would take would be for someone to hand a newsreader a script, and people would believe it. The script reader wouldn’t need to know the story was false, nor would the cameraman, or anyone else except one producer for each station that broadcast the footage.

If four stations all broadcast the news as real, and the president gave a speech about the “terrible loss of life”, who would doubt it?

Now is it starting to make sense why the government would be so interested in your having a digital TV?
After watching the green screen clip, take a look at the Naudet impact clip below, and see how easily it would have been to use the sky as a green screen to remove anything that didn’t resemble a plane.

However improbable it would be to fool so many people, it would be far from impossible. All it would take would be brass balls and a compliant media.

What I love about the Naudet video is, if you pause the frames that supposedly show the plane approaching, you can see right through the “plane”…

Also, in the longer version of the video, where the firemen first hear the so-called plane and look up, isn’t it just marvelous that the cameraman is able to tell that it’s headed for the towers, and turn to focus right there instead of continuing to look around, even before the “plane” comes into view? Truly a miracle on a day of so many others.

    The Naudets should be basking in the limelight of the success of their remarkably fortunate and unique “documentary” of the event that changed the world forever – it is curious how they have virtually vanished into obscurity. 😉
