Welcome back to the martins podcast, this is steven I’m, the owner and creator of mazzi’s backdrops for corporate events, really anything that is a visual element or within a church or special. Then that’s. What we specialize in our subjects, pertaining to stage backdrops, like will take, for example, will go through and talk about the specific of a backdrop we’ve used in a previous at talk about a backdrop idea that we have or how we work with different backdropsor, how I say, for example, we how we correctly light a backdrop, or we set up a backdrop in a particular manner to meet a specific goal, whether that be to create a specific feel or a specific time that line so today, I would like to talk a little bit about how we maximize the visual death within our backdropsas. You can probably tell from our website a lot of our pictures on a website. We have a mixture of panels that are both dimensional and less dimensional or flat patterns, for example like the crescent moon with a samurai panels. Those are there not dimensional by character, however, some good some. Why setup and some good lighting? You can really get some amazing dimension with those. So one thing I really love to do with the gray two layers. You don’t have to do this for a full backdrop, but you can do it for like section or segments of either stage backdrops or make columns behind a backdrop really really good way to trade more deaths. In more contrast with in your stage design sofor example. If we’re, if we’re trying to get more death with a crescent moon stage, design typically only thing that about 4 ft tv off the back curtain. So if there’s a black curtain behind behind the stage all up at the hino put some up lights on the black or white or really any color, that’s back there. I always so I can get a closing colors between that and the mod seems backdrop up lights on the maltese backdrop, as well contrast is contrast, communicates emotion and if you can communicate emotionintimacy intimacy, sorry, I ain’t going to work. Ramona strive to do so. Another way that we can create dimension is by offsetting rose, so making two separate mods, backdrops lighting them back and get rather brother that rather expensive whenever you’re doing multiple backdrops, essentially doubling the cost. Your back rub by doing two different rose to build a column about a foot off of the back drop off of your your curtain, build another one, another one of the four foot over, but this time 2 or 3. Instead, the next one you like one foot by 4 foot-and it’s going to do like you a lot of depth of the great stage backdrops thing is:you can use that to your advantage of placing your movie lights or your other lighting fixtures. You can get some better angles by shipping those around shooting around those around the elements. Also, another way you can get more dimension is through proofreading photo hours. So we talked about this a little bit of podcast. Simply what you can do is put power brackets on a corner of a column, so that makes like a 90 degree angle and then, instead of actually build it into a full power, you build it into a two-sided bean and then at the top of that 70 you attach it to your ceiling and hang. Hang it more like a backdrop, and then obviously you can use this by alternating. You can alternate the direction of the so you can. Either have to be coming towards or away from some from you. So that gives you another another visual option. In addition to those things, you can also freeze death by layering panels. For example, if you layer that you get a really cool like double oval look and you can you can even layer within different panel types, for example, you can put a canvas panel behind. How do you say, I have a basic that that’s going to show up different than to eat, then the pattern on the front side. Another thing where you could do that is you could do we can custom handles in black or flop? You could do a black or flat panel behind branches with a white winter branches on the front. Would look really incredible going to have that huge contrast between the two of you can be a lot different than to just do in like a shooting white on it. In addition to that, another way you can create that is by a bye instead of hanging your backdrop flat, you can create a subtle stage backdrops curve or a subtle angle. To the backdrop you can do this just by making sure your ties are on to a pipe that is either curved or angle. The the flexible nature of the motzing products make them so that you can actually send them, send them around around areas which makes it really cool that you can create some more dimensional pieces. Without really without you know, hurting your stage backdrops panels and without any additional hardware. You just have to use a little bit of extra time, trying it out there putting it together, making sure that the car works out well across the full background density of death within your steven at martins.
