topic icon Final green screen pickup shot for Wookey Hotel Advert

We've just finished a short pickup shot for one of the Wookey Hole Hotel adverts we filmed with Colour247 at the end of last year. We built a small bedroom set in our studio to film a green screen shot of a 'magic duvet' being pulled up - you can see the string but you wont see it in the final film! This was originally shot on location but it hadn't worked properly so needed to be re-shot to complete the advert. After a bit of testing with teddys as placeholders we were ready for Finley to get back from school and he was happy to lie in bed without much prompting!
