Jeff then personally tested out his vision for the performance aspect of the card. (Don’t let the look on his face fool you — he’s having the time of his life!)…

Once it was clear this vision was achievable, a professional dancer was cast and entered the world of blue screen!

After the backgrounds are designed, and the live action dancing has been danced, it’s time to see how it all might work together…

Meanwhile, as blue screen dancing is danced, Taylor and Josiah are getting the backgrounds rendered and detailed…

Finally, well, the colorfully delightful results speak for themselves! So send your loved ones this fun lil’ eCard this Valentine’s Day!
