chromakey_shootGreen Screen studios for hire at Galleon Studios

Galleon Studios is widely regarded as the best green screen facility in the north west.  With unparalleled expertise in chromakey the studios contain the kit and know-how to make your green screen project a reality.

The main green screen studio is a large infinity cove perfect to place your subject in a virtual space.  The cove is normally chroma green and painted prior to every hire to ensure a faultless start to your production.

What do you get with the green screen studio hire?

Included in every hire are the lights to light the space as well as a live keyer.  This unique piece of kit takes an SDI or HDMI feed and matches it with your virtual background giving you a preview of your final finished key.  In this way the lighting can be altered to replicate your eventual background.  Need your subject to be stood in a field on a bright sunny day?  Then Galleon can light the studio with a bright “key light” in the exact position to match that of the sun in your background plate.  Not only is the live keyer an effective way of seeing your final composited image it is a real wow factor if clients are on site too.

As Galleon Studios have such a wealth of experience we also provide a lighting technician to help you achieve the look you’re after at no extra cost.  This gaffer can rig and set-up lights according to your requirements to ensure your green screen production is filmed well on the day and get ensure no post production headaches.

What’s more a variety of green screen props and equipment are available either for hire or included in studio hire. These include a green screen treadmill, turntables, curtains, painted chromakey boxes and other useful items amassed from a decade of green screen filming experience at our north Manchester studios.

Motion Capture in the studio

If you need to match a moving camera shot to your background then that’s where Galleon Studios Moco-Rig comes in.  The Ditogear Omnislider can be programmed to replicate and duplicate the exact shot time and again meaning even the most complex effects shot can be achieved in the studio.

Extra kit to get your green screen results

As well as the live keyer you can hire autocues, cameras, microphones and interratrons here at the studio.  We also have an Odyssey7Q+ hard drive recorder that can record at a higher datarate and give greater colour space to your footage which means keying your final footage in post is even simpler.

Green screen in the sound proof studio

The sound proof studio is ideal for talking heads and green screen interviews.  The smaller space is ideal for filming more intimate productions and again the live keyer, moco-rig and any other kit can be used in this sound insulated environment.  No matter how intricate, or simple, your lighting set-up is there’s no need to hire extra lamps and no further cost to your days hire as lighting and a lighting technician is included in the daily rate.

Post production

Galleon Studios have worked in the industry as Galleon Productions for many years. We encourage you to “pick our brains” regarding your potential green screen project. With our post production experience we can also advise the best software to complete the green screen effects work and you can even use this on the day of your hire to test your footage as it rolls from the camera.

Also keep in mind that all of the kit mentioned above, the green screens, autocues, cameras, moco-rigs, turntables and jibs as well as the live keyer, are portable so they are available to hire on location.

Galleon Studios also have blue screen options as well so get in touch if you require blue screen rather than green.
