Richie’s First Attempt At A Music Video (For New Jersey Mayor Chris Christie) [VIDEO]
Consider this a test of the emergency "green screen" system. This is only a test. I wanted to try this very badly - using a green screen behind me to incorporate visuals that went along with my song. I'll let you be the judge as to how it worked. Remember - this is only a test.
Here it is. If you'd like to see how I did it, the explanation is below.
Here's my elaborate setup. I used an ugly green plastic tablecloth that I got at Target for $3.99. You stand there and sing and then import this video into your favorite editing software (I used iMovie from Apple). You insert the photos (courtesy of Getty Images -thank God for them), the computer works it's magic, and voila! -- Here it is again...
Now remember, I was my own cameraman, plus I used my iPad as a teleprompter, so you have to cut me some slack here. I'm only one man!! It was a lot of fun, but I'l let you be the final judge and jury as to how it looked. Thanks for viewing it at least.
