Since buying our first Ultimatte® in 1978, we have consistently led the industry when it comes to location blue or green screen facilities. We have modified and optimized our cameras for Ultimatte® blue/green screen work, which comprises over ninety percent of our business.
Our equipment package was not beaten to death doing a Roller Derby handheld shoot the day before it does your job.
We can input your background footage from any format, including graphics files on disk, tape or CD-ROM. We can build animations from your graphics files on set, or download them from the Internet on the fly.
And for those of you shooting on a camcorder for later compositing, we offer a video previsualization service so you can bring your existing background footage, graphics or pencil tests to the set and insert them into the blue or green screen behind the talent or product to show the director how the final composite picture will look. You get an immediate, accurate, layered image showing whether an effect is going to work as envisioned by the director, agency or client.
As with all highly technical aspects of our business, the person operating the Ultimatte® and interacting with the director and the DP is crucial to the success of any blue or green screen shoot. Bob Kertesz, the Ultimatte® artist who would be dealing with your production, is a partner in the company and someone who has been doing this type of work since 1978. Which means you get the same sane voice on the shoot as you had on the phone, not some freelance engineer who happened to be available and who has done colorscreen work once or twice before.
The experience derived from doing literally thousands of days of matting over the last two decades allows us to help you make the most of your production dollar. We can advise you on stages, paint, screens, lighting, props, wardrobe and every other aspect of colorscreen production.
