The film industry is one of the oldest industries with full dedication to providing people with absolute entertainment. Since the beginning, it has been evolving and adapting to new technologies and methods to make it more interesting for their viewers. At the starting time, films were very realistic and low quality. Filmmakers have to shoot in real life spots or make a set that resembles the original scenario to a maximum level. This required a lot of money and this used to make the budget of the movie too big to bear. But time has changed now. New technologies and modern science have improved to a different dimension. Now it is a common scene to see someone floating in the middle of air or walking on the water or roaming in some weird places that have no existence in the real world. All these are being possible because of the usage of green screen method. It has introduced a new turning point for all the filmmakers out there and blessed them with the chance of showing their creativity with full potential.

There are many shots found in the script while shooting that is difficult to shoot because of the location and set up of the situation. Established filmmakers mostly make a set according to the demand of the scene. It can be highly expensive. This might not raise a problem for big filmmakers but it will create huge budget issues for others. This is where the green screen comes in. With green screen, you can put any set up in the background and even create fictional objects and characters that will make the feel of the movie more enthusiastic. Better video editing software and editing capabilities are also important to complete the task. The list of users of green screen starts from the beginner level filmmakers to the professional level filmmakers and it is equally popular to every one of them. It is very useful for young filmmakers who are at the entry point to enter their filmmaking career. At first, their films are of a very low budget but this is a very crucial time for their career to make a mark for others to recognize their talents. Green screen allows them to unleash their true creativity within their budget.

With a little amount of budget, you can do anything on screen with a green screen and video editing software. The main focus is put on the lighting of the spot while shooting in green screen. The knowledge of lighting should be accurate to make the shooting suitable for further editing purposes. Without proper lighting, green screen effect will not portray exactly what the filmmaker wanted to show the viewers. All these are very helpful for them to reduce the cost of the set and total film making it a more profitable project.
