    10x10-tent

    This all-weather pop up tent goes up in seconds, and has detachable sides for protection from wind and rain. It’s a bit taller than a lightweight 10’x10′ pop up, and has weight plates for securing even on difficult surfaces like asphalt.

    This pop up is perfect for craft shows, events, or use on a film or video set.  When collapsed, it’s about 5 feet long. It weighs a bit over 60 pounds, so we suggest setting it up with someone to help you.

  8. Green Screen Backdrop and Stands


    backdrop

    Use our 10×16 green/white/black backdrop rental as your studio-in-a-bag.  Great for full-body and group shots, for both video and photography.  This makes it easy to get the “infinite white” or “infinite black” look with appropriate lighting, and makes for easy keying for video work.

    The advantages of fabric backdrops are portability and affordability. If you need a perfectly smooth surface, we suggest using seamless paper instead. We carry a few different colors of 107″ seamless paper for purchase.

    Included are two 8′ stands and a 12′ cross brace.  We suggest using sandbags for safety.  If you have rigging, you can mount this cleanly with mafer clamps with threaded baby pins and wingnuts.  Our rate includes one of your choice of backdrop.  Add additional colors starting at $5/day.
