During the Fall semester of 2018, IM students worked to create a modular system for a portable, green-screen-cube studio. Students researched construction materials and fabrics, technologies such as 3D printing and commercially available solutions to create an easy-to-deploy system. Once built, students explored various uses for compositing virtual reality experiences using our set up.
Commercially available green-screen cubes can cost upwards of $5,000 and the Innovative Media program wanted to find a cheaper solution to record virtual reality content for social media.
After researching potential materials, it was determined that PVC would provide the optimum rigidity to portability ratio needed for the project.
