Fans meet Outlander stars at Season 2 premiere

Outlander fans gathered in Chicago at the AMC theater for a screening party of the season 2 premiere.  As they were ushered into the theater they stopped by Big Lyle’s photo station to get there pictures with the two outlander stars. Using green screen technology, fans were able to pick either the apartment or the garden for their background.  We were able to help Starz and Xfinity brand every picture by putting their logos as well as the title of the show.

Big Lyle’s was excited to provide a newer feature for the fans and the network, an emailing station on site.  With the new station everyone that gets their picture done has the option to send themselves the digital copy. For the sponsor it has a real benefit as they receive all the emails at the end of the event as well as being able to send a personalized message with each email.

Go ahead and walk into the “Outlander world” as you view picture from the event below.

 

Mariners Inn’s River Rhythm Gala at Motor City Casino

Hey guys, this week we wanted to share an event we did at The Soundboard at Motor City Casino in Detroit.  The event was for Mariner’s Inn, a shelter and treatment center for the homeless.  It is such a great organization that helps men and their families that are affected by substance abuse.

This was our second time doing green screen pictures for this wonderful event and we couldn’t have had a more fun time with it.  We did personalized pictures for their Gatsby themed event that was a hit for every guest that did it and got to take a picture home with them. We can’t wait to come back next year to help such an amazing cause, please make sure to visit Mariner’s Inn on their website to learn more about what they do and how you can help!

Here’s a few picture from the green screen:)

Group parties in the Mardi Gras parade!

Whether you want to be on the parade route or even on a float, we have an array of Mardi Gras themed backgrounds available for any time of the year.  These pictures are from an event that we did on Mardi Gras and everyone LOVED it! As a team leader, I have worked for this company for about 5 years and my favorite part is watching the customers have fun. With an open air photo booth it automatically becomes part of the party!  A lot of people’s favorite part of your event may be crowding around the green screen (something that happens at every event) just to watch and laugh with the people taking a picture.  Guests have the opportunity to watch us edit them into their choice of background and get quite the giggle out of seeing themselves in silly costumes on fun backgrounds.  Then they get their pictures on the spot as a very memorable party favor! Big Lyle’s is a unique and fun experience that you won’t get anywhere else!
