I've created a small project using Colorama that is included in
the Colorama.aep project from the Chapter 6 folder. I've created
this using techniques and concepts that we've already covered,
so I won't go into details here. I was going for an edgy look (as
the soundtrack layer will attest). I used the footage of Mt Rainier
as the start layer. Then I used some green screen footage of my
friend and master unicyclist, Paavo, for the Add Phase layer.
I then got rid of most of the background and composited them
together. And all of this with one instance of the Colorama effect
and with only one layer visible. I then added Color Balance to add
color to the end result (Fig. 6.52).
