Shot on location? Green screens are invading television

I just had to share this fantastic video I found - Are you really sure what you are watching on television was shot on location? Look very closely, you might be surprised.

There still remains this persistent minority on the Internet who use common English words more than Japanese slang. I know, we throw you off when we show up. :)

Sanctuary is pretty much entirely green screen, though they pull it off very well in my opinion. I suppose it's cheaper on production to use a green screen instead of schlepping an entire cast and crew around from location to location. I guess I don't mind so long as it doesn't look cheesy.

Yeah, they generally get some pretty good work done with the green screen nowadays.  'Course, some settings just can't be faked all that well, hence the occasional bits of location shooting that are still necessary...

Agreed. Plus, technology has gotten to a point where green screens can be well done and seamless so that you never know it was used.

Incredible... I never thought shows like CSI or Monk were using so much CGI.
I was completely captured by that video. Wow.
