Greenbox / Bluebox fabric

Greenbox / bluebox fabric (canvas) is the technical material for shooting special effects for television and films!

Any digital background can be created with these materials!

Blue - and later green - screens were used historically in Hollywood as these colours (blue and green) are the most distant from the tone of the skin and so the person in front of the screen could not blend in.

Video cameras of today are equipped with sensitive sensors picking up blue and green colours so that these colours may be eliminated from the recording.

This technology enables the use of digital tricks during shooting

Bluebox technology (as well as greenbox technology) – technique of tricks of filming taken on by videotechnology.

Its main point is the layering of two different recordings. The first recording captures the main scene with blue background, while the actual background footage can be seen on the other recording.

We offer professional greenbox / bluebox textiles

This renders the effect as though the events were actually taking place at the location of the background recording. The great advantage of Gerriets textiles [1] and the technology is that they are cost-effective as, for instance, there is no need to travel to a given city just to record a scene in that city.

All of our textiles are exclusively B1 flame-retardant materials that fit the unique requirements of shooting in television and film studios well. The benefit of these materials is that they are 5m wide; therefore, fewer rolls are needed when sewing them together for the background. These textiles are customizable per request in our own tailor workshop.
