:: Marketing Gem of the Month ::

Peppershock Goes Green

The use of greenscreens is a new and modern way to enhance your website! Peppershock can film you performing numerous activities in front of our in studio greenscreen such as sitting, walking, dancing, running…etc. Then using computer editing software, the greenscreen is “keyed out” behind you, and replaced with anything you can imagine. Transport yourself into a medieval castle, an Italian Villa, or even the moon! This technique has been used in countless major motion pictures and can be seen everyday on your local news channel! Now, thanks to Peppershock Media, this is a great way to add some spice to your website and draw attention to your business!
