Ok, well it depends on what he is a producer of.  Is it commercial production or news production?  Both involve cameras, lights, etc.  News would involve new anchors at a desk with monitors built in which contain their "scripts" for the newscast.  Commercial production would involve a set for the commerical, so pick a product, maybe his own birthday commercial.  The use of chroma key, is a background of either solid green or solid blue  to which any picture can be "chroma keyed" in to make it look like the person in front of the camera is in a different location.  For instance the person in the commercial or newscast can be in the studio but a "chroma keyed" image can make them look like they are standing in front of the White House.  It might be fun to use a drape or sheet of royal blue or kelley green "chroma key."  Newscasters use it most frequently for weather forecasts and to make guests look like they are in a certain locale.

AThank you so much for the fast response. He is a television producer for the McDonald's channel. He produces content to be played in all the McDonald's restaurants.
