As you are out and about looking for that poor unsuspecting fool to pinch because they are not wearing green today, please don’t pinch the weatherman!! I am writing this blog for all weathermen, not just myself, because most of use cannot wear green. It is not because we hate St. Patrick’s Day, I it because most of us stand in front of a green chroma key wall.
If you have never been to a TV station and seen how the weather works, we stand in front of a blank green wall when we do the weather. Our camera is set up to replace everything that is green with our weather graphics. So if I wore anything that was green then you would see the graphics instead of that article of clothing, and I would look “see through”. I found a you tube video that another station did that demonstrates how the chroma key wall works.
So please don’t pinch the weatherman today… we have an excuse!!
