Here’s a mind-blowing demo reel by Stargate Studios that will make you doubt everything you see on television in the future.
that explains why the background is sometimes so perfectly blured
There are people who believe what they see on television??!?
Some of the shots are obvious in the sense that you’re not going to shoot on Mars or on Mt Everest. What i find very interesting is the trend in the industry to go green screen on very casual shots like the Lincoln Memorial or non-descript streets of San Francisco and New York. The fact that it’s cheaper and possibly faster (considering travel, permits, etc.) to use CGI and compositing rather than on location for “easy” shoots demonstrates how far digital special effects have gone in roughly 20 years.
And/or just how impossible/expensive the various State/Federal bureaucracies have made it to obtain permits to shoot the shots necessary.
Granted, it’s all about control and shooting on a small lot or in a studio gives far more control than on-scene.
TV is cheating
Sorry, but a lot of it just looks fake.

Everything is just green screen. I feel like someone just told me Santa isn’t real.
you would think otherwise, but seeing how these shots are made makes them even more amazing!
