Movie studios are getting away from using green screens


alien underground

Phil Edwards describes, for Vox, the way movie studios are getting away from using “Green Screens” for background, but rather designing layered pseudo-stage sets with sophisticated lighting schemes for character backgrounds, especially for science fiction films (alien landscapes, insides of space stations) and series, like “The Mandalorian”.

This technique could be especially useful for an interior of an O’Neill Cylinder, with its curvatures (actually done briefly in “Interstellar” near the end).
