Best Color for Studio Walls?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jason Cascio Feb 27, 2013. 22 Replies

Howdy people. This may seem like an odd question or one with an obvious answer. I have a room in my basement with a space about 16' x 14' that I am converting into a studio for stop motion. I have a…Continue

"Thanks Jim! I actually found black velvet curtains at a local drapery shop..grommets on top so they were easy to hang on cheap poles. "

Jim Arthurs replied to Jason Cascio's discussion Best Color for Studio Walls?
"Black is best, and certainly the best if you're doing time exposures with generally low light levels in the first place.  While not as light absorbing as velvet, the stuff Nick mentions is known in the US as Duvetyn ( or commando cloth)…"

"I got a bunch of left over greenscreen from the Spartacus WOTD TV series. I guess it's only about 4ft by maybe 6ft, but it was free and should be sufficient for 99% of things I need it for. Ask around local production companies and rental…"

"Ahh, good call, NIck! Did you have to make the kicker light brighter to compensate for the filter? "

"I had a scene where I used some green plastic sheeting as a greenscreen, and it was not matte enough.  It reflected some white light back at the camera in spots, just like Don's blue screen.  But I got a polarising filter for my…"

"It's matte paper. They use it here for roofing etc I think. The way I shoot makes it a bit of a non-issue though, because I have such a slow turnover I can triple check exposures."
Feb 7, 2013
Don Carlson replied to Jason Cascio's discussion Best Color for Studio Walls?
"That works too- as long as the paper is completely matte. I've had issues in the past with a blue background that wouldn't key out right. The reason ending up being that light was reflecting off of it and creating hot spots. You…"

"I wasn't allowed to paint them black, so I staple gunned black building paper all over them. Sort of like temporary wall-paper or something."

Don Carlson replied to Jason Cascio's discussion Best Color for Studio Walls?
"Man, if only I could get away with painting my walls black... That would be ideal! At the moment, I've got black curtain covering up the stop motion area. "

Hendrikus De Vaan replied to Jason Cascio's discussion Best Color for Studio Walls?
"The walls in my office/edit suite are 18% grey (rgb: 118,118,118). Makes for a great, neutral working environment.  My studio walls are matte black. "

StopmoNick replied to Jason Cascio's discussion Studio is ready for lighting and I need some help...
"The best way to evenly light a backdrop - especially a chroma key blue or green screen - is with a cyc light, which has an assymetric reflector. I used to use old Strand Iris lights at the ABC. If you put the lights up near the ceiling, the light…"

"Any recommendations on a good lighting starter kit for Chroma Keying? I am looking for something to light anywhere from 5x7 to an 8x10 background. I will be using Halogen lighting for my sets/puppets. Thanks!"

Lighting question for all you's guys

Hiya, folks.I'm curious what kind of lighting you use- halogen,  tungsten, LED, or compact fluorescent (spiral) bulbs. The main purpose of asking is that I am not sure how hard to design my clay for the animator who is going to use it. So far, there…Continue
