The Pen (Tool) is Mightier than the Sword!

We have some crazy fun at Rudkin Productions. We work really hard and to break up the stress and intensity of all the deadlines we live under… when we play… we play hard too. At least once a week, we take 30 minutes to an hour to laugh and frolic as a group. It might be celebrating a co-worker’s birthday, or wearing our pjs to work, or someone’s kid stopped by or we just take a moment to make fun of the insanity we like to call work. But regardless, what we have discovered is that it is important to occasionally let off some steam thus not to kill each other (Disclaimer: does not apply to Olga & Meg when working on The Boom). Not only does it relieve stress, it makes us really like our work and like each other. We feel if you have to go somewhere everyday for 10 hours, you probably better like it and like who you are with.

By now, most of you have seen our fun Christmas card, but what many of you don’t know is that each person in the card was shot individually (see previous blog) and then put into the background. When Josh, who played our Flick in our Rudkin Christmas Story, was shot – we forgot the hat, scarf and googles true to the movie scene! So what do we do? Reshoot it? No. Round up the props? Nope – we PhotoShop them in!

I do believe we have some of the most talented graphic designers around.  The tutorial below might look easy, but in reality it takes some mad PhotoShop skills to get this accomplished.

If your next project needs this type of talent – give us a call. Want to be a size 8 on your next Christmas card, give us a call too. We like spread our talent around.

Until next time!

Love the Rudkin Gang
