The Pittsburgh Penguins come out with a Christmas video every year and this was the one they did for 2014. I don't know what software they used to make it, but they were able to take the National Lampoon Christmas Vacation movie and seamlessly replace characters from the movie with themselves. I think whatever they used has some tremendous potential for us Halloween enthusiasts. Imagine being able to make video segments of our favorite horror movies with our own props or actors in them! If anyone knows how this was done I would love to learn more about it.

I think they just used green screen and inserted themselves in front of the actor. I don't think it's that hard. The trick is to get the lighting correct.
You could use a software like Camtasia Studio 8 to do the trick. There is a free 30 day trial, then if you want to buy it I think it's around $300.

The nice thing about this software is all the help videos that come with it. Very easy to follow if you know a little about computers. (I would not recommend it to my grandma who know nothing about computers.)
