Video: ‘Creating Wonderland’ – A Behind the Scenes Look at ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Progressions

Earlier this week, Walt Disney Studios released this amazing video that shows a behind the scenes peek at the progressions used to mix live action with computer generated imagery to form some of the incredible sights found in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Much of the live-action is filmed against a greenscreen using a technology called chroma key (most often used in television weather reports) in which everything that is green (such as the background, the frog standees and even some of the people) is removed automatically from the final product, allowing them to mix the images together seamlessly.
