Translites have been a truly integral part of my career so far and have found their way into numerous productions.  I always undertake the whole production of the Translite from directorial  discussions to photography, through photoshop and finally the printing stage.  Set design, image scaling, lighting and sfx all play a vital role in producing a convincing final image on screen.  The techniques used on a printed backdrop are now transitioning across to virtual volume studios where the principals and theories of the craft remain the same.
