This one took a lot longer to make than I had planned, but now it’s finally finished! The problem was that although I used a yellow/green-ish sheet behind the couch, it obviously didn’t help at all when I wanted to make the red couch transparent, so that the red accordion and guitar could be in front of the main Fredrik. I did the best I could, and it’s certainly not perfect, but it will have to do. It’s the music that counts anyway, right?
I learned a lot about chroma keying anyway, and if I’d ever want to do a video similar to this (and the other multi-Fredrik videos, like The Cartoon Medley, and The TV Theme Medley), I would do a much better job!
Oh, and maybe I should tell you about my choice for a cover: I have always said that I don’t want to do any full covers, because they’ve already been made by so many other people, so it’s not that fun to just imitate. But I had been thinking about doing an a cappella version of Killer Queen for a while, because it has such great and interesting harmonies! And then I added instruments one by one to make it more interesting.
I’m satisfied with the results, and I hope you enjoyed it too!
