I'm interested in adding some collapsible backgrounds to my interview kit. I use muslin backgrounds quite a lot, but would like to have the option of something that can be deployed a little more quickly. (Nino's terrific site, efplighting.com, has been very helpful.)
When I looked for a specific background I came up with these questions:
Best all-around size for van travel? Best for air shipment?
Which fabric, to provide a non-wrinkled look? (I travel with an HDV camera with lots more depth of focus than I'd like.)
Any specific quality rec's as far as manufacturer?
Bob, I recommend the Denny backgrounds http://www.dennymfg.com/ they have the most extensive line and I also believe that they have the largest ones available, 6x9
The background stretches on its own flex frame making wrinkles disappears. It folds to and apx. 30" round. I never travel with the backgrounds so I don't have any idea on protecting it. I imagine a large portfolio case would do it.
