Here We Go Again Into 2014 And Thankful For The Chance

Consider The Value You Have Developed With Your Suppliers And Clients Through The Years.

As we enter the 2014 business year its helpful to reflect on what made us successful in the past year. We can build on those things we found working for us and reworking those that did not. We all have colleagues, suppliers and clients that contribute to meeting our goals.

This past week we found some well know people articulate the things that are important to making us successful. I believe the thoughts Meryl Streep expressed when she accepted her award as an Icon in her business relates to all of us. We rely on each other, for any of the success we have had, and to continue to strengthen those relationships is our primary goal for 2014. 

We are privileged to have been a key partner in making the presentation of the fast growing Palm Springs International Film Festival a success. The film fest has worked with PrintB3 now for more than five years developing many demanding graphic displays. 

The festival relies on the full range of our design, print formats and fabrication expertise. Much of the work being used as photographic backgrounds where millions of images of Stars and guests appear will be circulated around the world online and in every print form used today.

The special relationship we have enjoyed with the Palm Springs International Film Festival has led to many more relationships in and out of the film and event industry. Not to mention it can be a lot of fun working with the producers of such a prestigious event. Most of all it helps to keep in mind that our clients result is all that counts in the end. So on to the Santa Barbara Film Festival, and the many other projects that Printb3 clients have been relying on for years.

If we haven’t worked together in some time drop us a line or call Toll Free 855.774.6823 and we can discusses some of the exciting ways we can add value to your projects.

 Holiday season for some but its Film Festival season at PrintB3

It’s not only Santa who is checking his list twice.

Palm Springs International Film Festival Step and Repeat photo back drop

While some are winding down the approaching the holidays not so here at PrintB3. The season is in full swing beginning the first week of January with the Palm Springs International Film Festival.  This is a challenging time for both the producers of the events as well as the print providers.  Those glamorous photo shoots and video interviews all feature backgrounds featuring the festival sponsors.

These images are viewed millions of times all around the world featured in the film promotions and press releases. Not to mention the millions of shares through social media.  Sponsors performance is critical to an events success and the grand format print providers are challenged to make them look great. Many of the venues and scheduled events are not cast in stone until the last minutes.  Supporting sponsored events demands a lot attention to details with the flexibility to accommodate late changes and additions to the print work. The expectation for perfection is never mitigated by the lack of lead times.

Many of the festivals rely on a plethora of contract designers and producers leaving the coordination of art to print, material selection, color matches, etc. Designers may not be familiar with all the players in the process, with new talent changes from year to year.  Often the continuity is provided by the printer while being taken for granted by those who are not immersed in the process. This proves an opportunity for those who are willing to spend their holiday shopping season checking and double checking the print list.

Palm Springs International Film Festival Update

Founded in 1990 by then-Palm Springs Mayor Sonny Bono, the festival has grown into one of the largest in North America. Palm Springs’ festival is a global affair, offering U.S. moviegoers a rare look at the year’s best international films.  Precursor to the Oscars with 136,000 visitors the festival is a great success for the desert city.

This year PrintB3 had a very special ancillary project to help promote Susan Bernard’s “Marilyn: Intimate Exposures” featuring her father’s photography of Marilyn Monroe and Norma Jean.  The large format prints were produced on our  OCE 550-XT flatbed printer on foamcore. The striking prints were exhibited throughout Palm Spring’s uptown design district.

“The Prince and the Showgirl,” the 1957 Monroe movie that provides the setting for current Oscar hopeful “My Week With Marilyn,” starring Williams as the cinema icon, will also be screened. Photographs from the book “Marilyn: Intimate Exposures” by Susan Bernard will be exhibited throughout Palm Spring’s uptown design district.

The lion’s share of our work for the Palm Springs International Film Festival is in photo backdrops. Step and Repeat walls printed in lengths up to 80 feet as seen in this clip, with 3 foot x 8 foot rigid panels mounted in a variety of formats, from free standing as seen in the entrance to the Palm Springs Convention Center, to wall mounts at the Palm Springs Art Museum.  The color matches are critical  matches. The photography and video is seen hundreds of millions times around the world.  We’re looking forward to this summer’s Shortfest. 2016 live streaming movie

Step and Repeat Banners Brand Your next Event

Step and Repeat banners from PrintB3 909.259.0153 provide a backdrop for your event photography placing your logos in every photo taken. How many event photos rely on caption text to place the photo at your event? How many golf tournament photos have you seen where the event and its sponsors are lost to the viewer? Promote your event throughout the life of the photography rather that the putting green at the golf course.

Step and Repeat banners provide a contrasting background for your photography featuring the logos of your event sponsor. The recent OPARC charity golf tournament placed a Step and Repeat banner at the first tee as a back drop for the photos of participating golfers. Every team photo included clear reminders of the tournament sponsor and event organizer OPARC.

Step and Repeat banners mounted on easy to erect banner stands accommodate movement to the awards venue, again providing a branded photo back drop. Artwork for the banners is usually provided by repeating the desired logos in any pattern where they will be framed in your photos. The size of the groups to be photographed will dictate the width of your step and repeat banner. Adjustable stands and mounts will easily accommodate up to 12 foot lengths with a standard height of 8 feet.


Step and Repeat Banners Elements of Design

Designing step and repeat banners entails more that a simple layout of your logos. The purpose of the step and repeat backdrop is to display and preserve the event and feature its sponsors. Photos will be distributed to outlets depending on the scale of your event. These images will persist for years on the web and in print, so attention to there design and deployment are worth your effort.

The lighting of the backdrop along with the flash photography must be considered when planning your set-up. As you can see from these Palm Springs Film Festival examples flash photography is the biggest problem. It is difficult to control the lighting when many photographers are shooting away simultaneously. One device you may consider is a set-up where the step and repeat is presented at a slight angle to the head on flash. The backdrop may be either canted from bottom to top, or set at an angle to avoid a perpendicular photo shot. The examples illustrate the difference between the angled shot and the face on shot. Hot spots are less of a problem with the angled shot.

The long red carpet step and repeat backdrop presents the biggest problem. For best economy you print a continuous banner and are stuck with a lot of face on conditions. The number of photographers and the speedy passing of their subjects are less than ideal for photography. Given that the images persistence is so long where many millions of views will occur, investment in a more sophisticated step and repeat backdrop may be worth the added investment.

This photo of Maria Carey from the 2010 Palm Springs Film Festival Gala shows how well the background presents when angled to the subject.

Consider producing your long red carpet backdrops in segments where they may be set at angles to the flash sources. The added expense in your framed set-up will pay back many times over in the improved quality of the photography. You may want to set-up an example beforehand to test shoot your colors and the background lighting.

Time constraints are always at event set-up time. Just remember the results will be out there for years, along with your credits.
