A Cast of Hundreds Is Ready for Its Close-up

Daniel Zana knows about working with stiffs. During the day he directs and edits (and occasionally appears in) B&H Online Videos where he makes inanimate objects mug for the camera. Over the last four years he's also made his own movie, a documentary about collectible toys inspired by cartoons, sci-fi films and comic books.

First Look at Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended

My background in filmmaking and animating keeps my focus on any editing and animation tools that become available. I've used Photoshop over the years to design textures for 3D objects or basic photo touchups required for the final video project. And although I have a collection of decent SLR cameras, still photography is more of a hobby for me, so I've limited my use with Photoshop to the video/animating worlds. Thus when Photoshop CS4 Extended came out a couple of years ago, I was already familiar with the basic animating tools included that may have eluded the amateur or pro photographer.
