Pause a clip and make the background B&W

Hello,
I have CS5 and I did a video of an athlete. I would like to freeze a clip, make the background black and white and flash the athlete for a few seconds. (Kinda like ESPN does) I have Photoshop and have just enough experience to mask out the background and make it black and white on a still. Can this be done in Premiere and is it easy enough?

Thanks,
Art

If you can do this in Photoshop, then simply import the .PSD into Premiere..
Premiere will respect the layering..

After that, you can scale the player larger, scale the background smaller, and get some sort of animation out of it.

There's a thought. Since I already have the stills created with masks it's probably a lot easier that way.

I'll do that,
Thanks!
