Coloring Props that are BG Elements

Designs drawn within a BG are commonly propped out when they animate. Simple props are fine for Color Designers to handle, although with the growing complexity of show styles, we are seeing cases of very complex BG elements that fill more than ½ the screen, being given to Color Designers to handle. It is up to individual Color Designers to gauge their comfort level with these assignments, and they are encouraged to speak up to their Supervisor or Director when they feel that a prop they have been assigned deserves to be paid at the Background rate, in order for it to be completed. Please see “Rendering or Editing a Background” below for more information.
