We seem to be doing an increasing amount of green-screen work.
Fascinating stuff, often confined to a small stage (so some weapon adaptations have to be made).
Promotional work for Sky TV and Museum client.

(800 tickets for this event sold in the first week... looks good! :))

The great thing about green screen is that if you get a still image... makes it so easy to cut out in Photoshop!!!

We've invested in lots of new kit, not only that Mr Watson (Shields and Shoes) made us some lovely gladiatorial shields... which we've just painted!
