        I hadn't heard of him until I saw this video. I found his IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0381487/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
        If you click on news, it talks about his videos with filmmaker IQ.

        I saw a few more of his videos. Here are some of the links:

        I'm definitely going to look for more of these!

            History of Compositing - ERROR - &quot;Greenscreen Compositing&quot; is NOT &quot;Chroma Key.&quot;

            A common error nowadays is referring to "Greenscreen Compositing" as "Chroma Key," or "Chromakey."

            Common or not, it is incorrect.

            "Chroma Key" (correct) or "Chromakey" (incorrect) is not a Film or Filmmaking term.

            It is a Video term, and an OLD Video term. It refers to using Set and Background
            color values to ELECTRONICALLY SWITCH video areas to be "transparent,"
            in a Video Switcher.

            Today we do not use Video Switchers or Chroma Key to combine images.
            In Filmmaking we shoot Film or Digital against a Greenscreen, and we Composite images
            together in computers, with software "Layers" emulating "Core" and "Hold-out" matte images,
            as done for many years on Film.

            This particular "History of Compositing" reference to "Chroma Key"
            is the only known incorrect information, in it.

            A correct History of Compositing can be found in the many papers of the SMPTE.
            (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers).

            For technical processes to work, it is necessary to have correct definitions.
            We do not make up our own definitions, of technical devices or processes.
            We find nearly a century of already-defined terms, at SMPTE.

            A simple search shows if "Chroma Key" is used in the movies.
            No, only in old articles about Television.
            https://www.smpte.org/s?as_q=chroma+key

            This search shows the preferred term for movies is
            "Greenscreen Compositing."

                  I saw a great video by these guys. It was about, "The Psychology of Scary Movies." It's a must watch for anyone that makes horror films: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcAfzK4YPSI
