10: BLUE SCREEN VS GREEN SCREEN When the computer sees the green, it will replace the green with a picture we have created in another part of the computer. A blue screen does exactly the same thing except the computer tries to fill in the blue instead of the green. There is no difference between a blue or a green screen, your foreground will help you decide.
14: MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD
17: "A couple of years ago, we were doing a film called Finding Faith in Christ. The opening sequence was to be the Savior calming the storm, and we were going to film that in Seven Peaks Water Park. We filmed it on June 30th, which is close to being the shortest night of the year. We couldn’t get into the water park until eight o’clock when it closed. It didn’t get dark until about 9:30, and we had about four hours of set up. It didn’t start to get light the next morning until about 5:00, so we figured we had maybe four or five good hours of shooting and too much work to do, but we went forward with it." "Well, that afternoon, I remember this terrible storm came up. It was the worst storm of the summer, black clouds, lightning, pouring rain, and I thought, “Oh, great. Just what we need. Now we can’t do it.” But you know, that storm emptied the water park, and at four o’clock in the afternoon, Seven Peaks was totally empty. We were able to start setting up and then the weather just cleared and it was this beautiful calm night. We got all the shooting done just in a perfect manner. It was ironic because we were filming a thing about the Lord controlling the weather, and that’s exactly what He did, so it made that shoot possible." (Gary Cook, director)
