Can You Give Me Feedback on Youtube Video?

I'm kind of new to this, but I was hoping you guys could give me some feedback/tips anything helpful.


I shot this on the Black Magic Ursa Mini 4k on a green screen with the Sigma 18-35 art lens.


hmmm. Content or aesthetics? Content is cute, but the historical elements are wrong. Confucius was not Japanese, he was not a leader of Samari. He was Chinese, which by the way is the predecessor to Japanese culture. Japan was originally Chinese people who overwhelmed the indigenous peoples there.

Hey! So I watched your video and there are things that I would improve on/do a bit differently. The keying itself was pretty decent. You could see imperfection around the hair but that can be entirely or mostly eradicated with a bit of tweaking. One of the most important things when using a green screen (or shooting just about anything) is lighting. When you light your green screen you need to make sure it's lit as evenly as possible. I also noticed that the lights on your subject changed during the video. Uneven lighting or shadows could be the source of keying imperfections and when the lighting changes but the environment and setting stay the same it's very noticeable. One of the first things I instantly noticed was the shaking. The camera obviously wasn't on a tripod and the movement was pretty distracting even more so with the static green screen backdrop. So next time you do something similar make sure it's as stable as possible. Lastly, the audio could be a little clearer. I noticed you used a lav mic but it would probably be better if it was mounted to his t-shirt and not his jacket or you could've used a boom on a c-stand since he was in one place for most of the video. This would prevent the noise heard from clothes rustling. What could liven the video up a bit is implementing the images on the green screen next to your subject instead of cutting away to them but that's just my stylistic preference.

Filmmaking is all about learning so the best thing we can do is get out there and do it.

Wish you the best of luck!
