I've been asked to assist in a fund raiser for a sports club, and would like the gathered aficionado's opinion if this will work. This topic died a slow and painful death over in the "business section" with no replies after several day, maybe I'll have better luck here with a few rephrased questions.
The committee want to do a photo booth "Have your picture taken with Kobe Bryant (replica)", and here's their idea.
They want to get a fathead, and make it into a freestanding cutout (i.e..)
The kids could then pose with the cutout, blocking, taking the pass, whatever with Kobe. Take a picture, shooting tethered to a laptop, instantly review and reshoot if needed, print out a 4x6 immediately on-site, about $5. If they want a bigger one, order it, pay now, get it delivered, probably from smugmug (details pending) or their coach.
This is for a co-ed club, with 500+ kids participating. The fathead would cost $100 plus mounting costs, the pix about $0.30 each based on supplies. Figured we could raffle off the cutout at the end and cover its cost.
Do you think this will work? Are there any gotcha's you can think of before they go ahead and promote this? For those of you with kids in this age bracket and assuming they are sports crazy, would you spend $5 for this, $12-15 for 8x10?
The work would all be done with volunteers, so the work process needs to be simple.
Thanks in advance
