We have been doing some research into how complicated it would be to film some folklore movies. Our original idea was to try to base them on the actual folklore. The problem is locations and the actual stuff we need to make it look real is out of our budget. What we found out was that the technology to green screen film has improved a ton and is very affordable. Stuff like VMIX can run on most computers and they are powerful enough to do the video compositing in real time. We are talking to the guys at HDVIDEOGEAR.COM and a bout to buy a minitricaster box to start filming a series of folklore shorts. What we want to do to get our feet wet and test the equipment and really learn how to do this is film one short a week for a year. When we say short we mean they might be as short as 3 minutes. Every week we would post a short for a different folklore. If that is something you would want to see please sign up for our news letter so we can contact you when we launch. Also if you are interested in helping with the production or donating to the funding of this project please drop us a line we would love to chat with you.
This is a famous image captures of big foot. It would be easy to recreate stuff like this using green screen with something like a tricaster. The found footage idea is one idea. Or some people out searching for him and capturing it on video. It could all be done from a studio.
