Behind the Scenes at Green Screen Shoot

We just finished up a green screen shoot with the puppets last night. Here are a few pictures to share what the two days were like.
I  manipulated the puppets to a soundtrack we've already created with voice actors. We shoot each puppet individually then Lee composites them in the desired layout. In that way it is much like a traditional animation process.

Lee is responsible for the cameras, lighting, capture equipment and anything technical.

The characters waiting for their cue.

When shooting this way the image that I am seeing in the monitor is opposite to what my arm is doing. This always takes good bit of practice to get right.
A few of our puppets have too much green in their skin and costumes to shoot in front of the green screen, so we have to put up a make shift blue screen for their footage.
