Following the State Of The Union speech last night the Democrats followed up with the traditional response. There was all manner of confusion and head-scratching when it was announced that Stacey Abrams would be the one to deliver the party rebuttal.
The curiosity began due to Abrams not currently holding a major office. She recently a contentious bid to be Georgia’s governor. But the curiosity did not end there. Abrams appeared on camera with some very curious production values. Many were questioning the imagery.
… is this green screen

The lighting is horrible for Stacey Abrams. Looks like she's standing either in front of a green screen or rows of ghosts. #SOTU

#DemocraticResponse odd that Stacey Abrams doesn't acknowledge the applause behind her. It seems as if she is in front of a green screen and they are off site.

It is a valid question. The crowd seems so far back and out of focus as to appear like they are beamed in. The halo effect Abrams has going looks less like back-lighting and more like a badly set chromakey.

Well, considering the amount of fraud at the polls we keep hearing about, this is a perfect representation of their voter base.
What is the green screen of awkwardly standing, out of focus people supposed to accomplish?

A thousand talented Democratic filmmakers in Hollywood and NYC and yet the Dems still never ask for help on these things…

Such a valid point. As much as Hollywood donates to, and promotes Democrat causes you’d think they would support them with a bit of technical help.

Further supporting this theory, those “people” seen “standing” behind Abrams were shielded from the press. A local reporter was on the scene.

This is such a naive statement. How on earth does she expect to interview people who were not there??? Probably a video conference from the warehouse where they were gathered?
