Movie and Video Game Themed Save The Date Cards done with Green Screen... How to keep your wedding Unique!
At Green Screen Miami, one thing we love to see is creativity and originality... especially when it comes to weddings and green screens. Yet, when David and Cara contacted us with a vision and an idea for their creative "Save the Dates," i was a little reluctant to book the gig or even offer our services. They called in the midst of the craziness of our spring busy. A season that is filled with Trade Shows, Conventions, Wedding, Bar Mitzvahs, Grad Parties and non-stop events. Our primary services, after all, are Photo booths, GIF Booths and Green Screen Photo Stations for events, not necessarily for private photo shoots.
Regardless, I took the call and spoke to the young, recently engaged couple with a flurry of ideas. The concepts they actually sounded cool and creative... and right up my alley; they wanted to recreate iconic movie and video game covers. This sounded fun and challenging and with our busy season approaching its end, it sounded like something that I could take on in the right time. We spoke and discussed dates and since they had no immediate rush, we schedule for the first weeks after the craziness.
These are the movie and game covers they wanted to recreate and they wanted to add a Western Movie-Themed Save the Date that combined the cool swag of Will Smith in Wild Wild West with the grit of Clint Eastwood in his timeless western classics. We tried a few shots and poses on the green screen for each of the covers and then went to them to decide the best options and the best looking shots.
Once the photo shoot was done, I was eager to get to work. My mind was racing with ideas on how to work on the photos and background artwork. How to process the images to get exactly what we had in mind. David and Cara were a huge help with tons of ideas and a great creative edge. Their initial ideas and wonderful prop selection help set the tone and make my work that much easier. For the next few days, we bounced emails back and forth with suggestions and mocks to make sure we got it down to the T, including the Out Run cover which was not a green screen but just a re-imagining done on Photoshop.
Below are the final images alongside with the original that was used for inspiration...
I am very glad that I decided to take on the challenge as I had a great time working on these images and love the end result. David and Cara were some of the best clients I have ever worked with and I wish them both the best of luck as they begin the rest of their lives together.
