    All you need is a big ass flying background, that's how they made that one you link to.
    I would hate to chroma a job like that :eek:

    Here's a video where you can see the whole studio. It's not an effect... it's in the shot.

    Its not very difficult to do, you just need to know what you are doing. I do that effect with black a lot, as some of the projects i do are much more about a message than a flashy video.

    The toughest part is that you need to separate your subject from the white backdrop. This has to be done with lighting. You need to light the set evenly, then use a lot of back lighting to provide depth.

    No keying necessary if you shoot it on white.


    You would need a nice seemless white background and separate the talent from the background as much as possible.

    Lighting is the biggest factor in these shots.

    It's probably done on a cyclorama with big overheads. Easy to do if you have a studio that is already setup. Of course, I'm only talking about the first 15 seconds of the video. I couldn't watch any more of it in fear of barfing.
