Company Way (Reprise) is also from the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. This part of the song takes place in an office building representing the main characters' climb in the business. I found an image of an office building but it didn’t fit the correct size so I duplicated parts of the image to have it reach the length that was necessary. Using the same overlay I used for the first part of the song I put the colored blocks on top of this image. I would not change anything about this image because I believe it worked well with the song and all the action happening on stage. Company Way from the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying takes place in a mailroom. I found images of factories but the common issue was that there were people in the background of the images. The people in the photo would have looked like giants compared to the people on stage. In order to fix this I took parts of the image and moved them around so there would be no people present in the background. The image did not look complete in that state so I made the decision to add blocks of color that would also translate to the second image needed for this song. The image worked well with the set pieces that were on stage and added a pop of color the lighting did not do. I wish I could change the final image and make it look more complete without the blocks of color.
