“Set largely in a meticulous recreation of 1970s San Francisco, David Fincher’s taut thriller Zodiac captures the devastating impact a cunning serial killer has on the public and especially on the journalists and policemen who hunted him. To help create this relentlessly tense film, Fincher relied on two visual effects supervisors he had worked with in the past. Eric Barba of Digital Domain began helping Fincher with commercial projects in 2002. Matte World Digitalâ€™s founder Craig Barron knew him in 1981, when Fincher was a camera assistant in the matte department at Industrial Light & Magic, where they worked on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.”

Blue-screen, green-screen, chroma-key – it’s all the same thing. To put simply this is the process of filming a scene, object or person in front of a pure coloured screen (typically either blue or green) so that the colour can be removed later to achieve certain special effects.
