Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Gear overview, part of Video Gear: Lighting.
- [Jim] So Rich at the end of every week…that we use a lot of various gear,…we like to do a wrap up of what we were using on set…because some things we might have talked about explicitly,…other things you might have just noticed us using.…And Rich, this week we were talking…about creating a pure black backdrop.…And just like with a white backdrop,…you could choose black paper or something similar,…but I'm actually a really big fan of using black fabric…or Duvetyne because it's nice and even,…it has a little thickness to it…so it's not going to be transparent,…and you can pretty much find Duvetyne…at any grip rental shop or anything like that.…
- [Rich] Yeah, in the studio environment…we have a hanging curtain that's a very thick,…light-absorbing fabric, so it's easy to roll in and out…for that strong backdrop.…But sometimes on the floor we'll lay down Duvetyne…to take that white psych into a black standing environment…so you got exactly what you need.…This is really flexible, gives you that,…and black Duvetyne is great.…
