Stephen Colbert Green Screen Contest

The Colbert Report on Comedy Central has started a contest. It is called the green screen challenge.

He gives you about a minute or two of footage. He's rolling and jumoing around in front of a green screen swinging a light saber. He asked his audience to do some fun composites and send them to his show. He has already aired a couple of them in the last couple days.

Well, I did a Star Wars / Ghostbusters crossover. It is on posted on You Tube.

Please take a minute to check it out and vote for me if you like it.

"Stephen Colbert - The Conservative Ghostbuster" is a little further down the page. Please check it out and let me know what you think.

Any feedback?

Just checking for any feedback.

The footage of Colbert was provided. The rest was captured from DVD and cut and composited in Premiere Pro. It's the first time I have ever tried to use green screen footage and it was pretty fun to do.

There is something about using the stuff you are given in a creative way that is really cool. It makes you try to think outside of the box,

Glen, you have me scared and shaking. Oh, wait! I have 5 more 'puters that are clean. Only trouble is, they're operating on DOS.

That link went to GNAA. My desktop lit up like a pinball machine, hundreds of windows were opened before I did a hard boot. The Troll site likes to target OS X. Everything seems fine now.

I don't think this is going to be any voting going on for a while, the site got hacked.

If you go to www.colbertnation.com you can download the original green screen footage to edit.

Your's is way better. Nice job fitting him into Ghostbusters instead of a Star Wars scene. It works really well.
