Make a ghost crawl out of your TV screen!

If you’ve ever seen The Ring then you are familiar with the story of Sadako and saw her come out of the TV screen. As cool as that effect was it’s not so difficult or expensive to replicate! There is some post production work that has to be done in your favorite composting software but the end result is worth it.  Basically, you need to make a custom green screen for the actor to crawl through and a second one behind her to block out the background.  It’s important to make sure the measurements are correct for the setup of your scene, so the height, size and position of the TV should all be taken into account.

The video above from Indy Mogul describes all the steps and tools you need in order to set this effect up.  If you take your time in post I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
