There's a lot more Green Screening going on than you'd think...
Blimey. What I find interesting about this is how television and film acting must be becoming increasingly abstract - like performing in some kind of theatrical experiment in minimalism.
ALSO: what's interesting about this from a writery point of view is that one mistake you can make when you start out is to write certain scenes because you imagine they'll be easy to shoot, and avoid others because they might be too expensive. Whereas in fact it's often the simple things (lots of extras, night-time shoots) that cost a lot, and the apparently difficult (exploding cars, shooting in big stately homes) that can be a lot easier than you think.
