Bill Warshaw, Jeff Stasko
Stagelight Family Productions, 2005

Bill's comments: "This production was put on by The City of Brea, California, Youth Theatre program in association with Stagelight Family Productions... Our production values are fairly high.

"I built this poster for our upcoming show using Primatte. All seven photos were chromakeyed. Primatte worked out quite well and saved me a bunch of time.

"We have the posters printed on an HP Indigo short run press and then UV gloss coated to really make the colors pop. They're a great souvenir for the kids that makes them feel even more professional."

Bill's comments: "My role at Stagelight is Webmaster and Staff photographer.

I use high end digital SLR equipment for the cast poster photo shoot (Canon EOS 1D Mark II with 28-70/2.8L lens). I photograph the lead cast members in RAW mode on a blue screen using studio flashes, and import into Adobe Photoshop using the Adobe Camera RAW converter.

"Prior to Primatte I would use the Photoshop 'Extract' tool, but it was very time consuming and the results were not always the best quality. With Primatte the process is much quicker and gives better results - a win win!"
