‘Today Third Hour’ takes Megyn Kelly’s old set for a ‘drive’

Today Third Hour” has already been putting the video walls on the former “Megyn Kelly Today” set to good use — and this morning one of the smaller ones was used to create a “driving” scene.

After discussing James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” with Barbra Streisand, Al Roker, Jenna Bush Hager, Craig Melvin, Jacob Soboroff and Carson Daly, who were hosting the third hour Friday, Nov. 2, 2018, appeared on screen “driving” a car.

Unlike many of the setups used to create faux driving scenes that rely on chroma key walls, this setup featured a scenic view fed to smaller camera left video wall, which Kelly previously used for both topical and live interview interaction shots.

To complete the effect, the control room inserted a “windshield” and “hood” over the video.

Before going to break, viewers were treated to a “behind the scenes” look at how the effect was created.
