To get the look of our skiing ‘Starring You’ video, we used half licensed footage of a real person skiing and half in studio footage of us playing around on skis in front of a green screen. The last step was creating an avalanche of snow for the ‘Starring You’ skier to escape. So we up and bought 20 pounds of baking soda, got out some black cloth and trash bags and got creative as we tried to recreate the look of moving snow.
We built miniature mountains, spun snow with drills attached to paper towel rolls and pushed loads of baking soda all over the ground, requiring a massive cleanup effort! Check out our array of techniques below and the finished video here!
