"Do you offer a Green Screen Backdrop?"
We get this question all the time, and honestly, sometimes our first reaction is to cringe. Don't get us wrong--we do offer green screen, and it can be a great fit for the right event. But the key here is--the right event, not every event. Before anyone assumes they have to opt for a green screen, we want to be sure that this is truly the best option for them! The last thing we want is for a client to order something and have it fail to meet their expectations. Our goal is to be sure that you know exactly what you're getting so that you feel informed and receive the best service possible.
Why Do You Want A Green Screen?
To get started, why do you want a green screen? The answer we often get is that the client wants a unique, themed backdrop. We totally get the desire for a custom look. But did you know that The SnapBar can print any design or photo you want onto the backdrop itself? This means that no matter your party's theme, we can easily create a backdrop to match. We had a client who wanted a carnival tent as their backdrop. Instead of dealing with the hassles of a green screen, we printed the custom backdrop. It looked amazing--and it's cheaper than springing for a green screen!
Did you know that green screen inevitably lowers the quality of photos? Green screen photos just don't look as good as a standard photo booth picture; it's just the harsh truth. By using a custom backdrop instead, your photos look clean, professional, and Instagram-able! Not to mention, you don't have to worry about guests wearing green and disappearing into the backdrop, like in this photo shared by Twitter user, @rudetanks (not a SnapBar photo--please note!).
The Ugly Backdrop
Whether your party is for kids or your company, I'm sure you want the decorations to look nice. The problem with using a green screen backdrop is that it can easily become a giant green eyesore in the middle of your party! If your theme color is neon, be my guest! However, if you're planning a party with any other theme, why not choose a custom backdrop that matches the class of your event? Below is our green screen backdrop. It may work for some events--but definitely not all.
The Right Fit
From the beach to the Alps, we can print a custom backdrop to match any party theme while staying classy and keeping the photo quality high. However, if you want to offer your guests the choice between four fun and unique photo booth backdrop options, then green screen IS the perfect route for you! Some clients don't want to confine their guests to simply one backdrop--some events need options! For an activation for REI last summer, we gave guests a choice to snap a shot in front of Machu Picchu, Mt. Everest Base Camp, the Portugese Coast, or the Costa Rican Mountains! Another client, as you can see below, went more of the horrifying dinosaurs loose in Jurassic Park route. The possibilities are endless, really.
We have worked hard to create green screen experiences that match up to The SnapBar standard. A green screen experience isn't for everyone, but we're pretty proud of what we do to make it happen for the right event!
