In order to achieve a Halloween nickface, you need to record some spooky actions of yourself.
First, please make sure that you have fulfilled the following checklist required for nice videos.

  1. Solid background
  2. - Why are solid backgrounds needed? This helps the keying technology to distinguish the background from the foreground. The optimal choices, however, are blue and green for background screens since those look best when placed against skin tones. Ensure that no other instances of that color exist in the shot, as it is also extracted along with the background screen color.

    - Background screen is recommended being muslin fiber with dimensions 78,74 in x 47,24 in, a material you can get at a fabric store.

  5. Main actor/actress:

- It could you or anyone you may ask to put on the mask, sit before the camera and ready for creepy acting.

    • Kiss; Shy; Dance, Flirt … LOL who said ghosts are enemies of charm.
    • Smile; Laugh; Talk …Imagine how it will scare your friends to death.
    • we leave this for your creativeness.

  2. And start recording your actions with solid screens.
    There are a few requirements for this step and you may want to notice.
