Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Gear overview, part of Video Gear: Lighting.
- [Instructor] Every week on Video Gear Weekly…there's lots of little gadgets, doodads, accessories,…things we use to get the job done,…and we decided to add a extra, bonus segment,…sort of a behind-the-scenes on some of that gear.…Now, this week we talked about white backdrops…and we went in depth on a lot of the things,…but there's just a couple things to think about.…First up, one of the cheapest ways to get a white backdrop…- [Instructor] is paper! (laughs)…- [Instructor] Yeah. It's cheap, it's affordable,…it's disposable, you can order it for about 50 bucks…and have it shipped to a hotel room…for a job if you're on the road.…
- [Instructor] And if you tear it, scuff it up, rip it,…you're not going to feel, you know, the end of the world,…and best of all, if you have kids, you know,…give them the ripped-off pieces as extra coloring paper.…- [Instructor] There you go, yeah.…So this is a great, affordable way to have…that seamless backdrop.…That's going to work well for you.…Of course, you're going to need somewhere to hang it.…
