I can't really post anything about work, though it probably wouldn't hurt to say that I've been working on an automated matte extraction program in my spare time. It uses what is supposedly a state of the art algorithm for extracting mattes from natural images. It sometimes works pretty darn well, though overall it's fair to say that green screens aren't going away any time soon.

I was grumbling about what a poor matte I was getting from this image, when it occurred to me that while it's a lousy matte, it's a rather striking artistic effect.
