This term generally refers to interior vehicle scenes. It describes a situation where a stage is used – and sometimes green screen – to simulate a moving vehicle. The vehicle will be stationary and the actors will act out the scene while a footage will be projected behind the vehicle to make it look like it’s in motion. This is much cheaper than blocking off a road, setting up a car mount, with insert car and filming outside…hence why they call it the poor man’s process.
