Mind-Melting Green Screen Photos That Expose How Hollywood Really Works

Hollywood has come a long way thanks to advancements in technology like CGI and green screens. Movies and TV shows just couldn’t capture our imaginations the same way without these special effects.

Turning on a film with incredible effects can transport us to a different place, but doesn’t it make you wonder what it looked like actually filming these scenes? We always knew The Hulk must rely on CGI and green screens, but it’s another thing to see it with your own eyes. Check out these behind-the-scenes photos of Hollywood hard at work, and laugh at how ridiculous the actors look.

Considering the fact that half of The Matrix‘s plot revolves around Neo being inside The Matrix, a lot of CGI had to be involved. This scene was set in a warehouse and they still used an entire green screen background.

That tells me Keanu Reeves basically acted out this entire movie in his own imagination, which is pretty darn impressive.
