In the golden age of cinema, filmmakers had to scout out locations or build sets for their movies. Now, directors have the freedom that comes with all-digital environments, built in a computer and made to look however the director wants. All they need is the right software and buckets of green paint. Here are a few movies made with these types of techniques, for you to enjoy from the comfort of your living room/virtual reality chamber.

“Sin City”


One of the most common reasons to go with the green screen approach when you’re making a movie is to capture the look of a particular graphic work: In most cases, a comic book. And Robert Rodriguez spared nothing in bringing Frank Miller‘s crime comics to the screen with an often-creepy accuracy. The actors in “Sin City” don’t just resemble the characters they’re playing: They seem somehow xeroxed from page to the screen.
