Engagement with the #model is important to all #photographers, and being able to change the #background simply and remotely while still facing and engaging the model without having to disturb the energy of a shoot is an asset to any session.

A new Motorised Rotor Roller system for supporting photography background rolls in fixed #studio installations has just been launched by Creativity Backgrounds. It can be fixed to the wall or with mounted brackets or simply attached to background support stands using clamp brackets.

Mobile photographers can also benefit from the speed and convenience of using the Creativity Backgrounds Rotor Roller, this is especially useful with the full-width rolls. Event photographers will get a huge advantage from using the automated system. You can set up different colours before the event and change swiftly as the night progresses, flipping between white and greenscreen even.

The Rotor Roller of course also works on the Creativity car-friendly rolls as well

Colin Woodley, Business Manager of EIZO Limited, “At EIZO we are extremely fortunate to meet some amazing people in the professional graphics industry.   For the last five years we have had great pleasure sponsoring the Central Saint Martin’s end of year show for its BA Graphic Design course, where in 2012 we met Katy.  As a team we were blown away by her imagination, creativity and ideas.  Her input and spark has helped us relaunch our marketing campaigns and I am looking forward to debuting the finished piece, due Autumn 2013”

Katy Beveridge graduated with a first class honours from Central Saint Martin’s only last year and already her animation work has received the YCN Graduate Award, and been picked as one of Selfridges “Bright Young Things” championing the “most exciting young creators”. Her work has been exhibited internationally at film and Animation festivals such as Klik Amsterdam and the Toronto International Film Festival. Her graduate film “The Bicycle Animation” which used a bicycle wheel to create animated loops in real time went totally viral receiving over 1.5 million views and was featured on The Discovery Channel, The Huffington Post and The Atlantic.  Katy’s work aims to challenge the conventional notion of animation, focusing on the process behind the animation above the narrative.

Targeting serious photographers and graphics professionals, the plans are secretly under way, with the expected launch due Autumn 2013.  All that can be said today is EIZO Limited is delighted to be working on the new project as part of its evolving campaigns with its extensive range of ColorEdge monitors.
