Movies made with using Chroma background

Movies are the main source of entertainment, life wouldn’t be complete without some drama, action, comedy and romance.  For as long as there have been movies, there have been special effects.  Today, the magic of movies is largely regulated to computer generated special effects that use filming in front of a green screen to separate the actors from what visuals will be added in later.
