Last minute tip for a dark background - black garbage bags


Hello everyone,

while recording my submissions for VC5 I’ve had a problem with finding a dark background, or even a suitable piece of dark cloth to hang behind me - it seems quite a number of people have this issue. I’ve resorted to buying large-sized black garbage bags, cutting them along the side to form a sheet of black plastic and taping it to the wall. It worked wonders :smile: - it looked nice, the bag easily fills the entire frame and they are dirt cheap - try it out :slight_smile:

I hope this helps anyone who is still recording their submissions. Good luck!


Nice! I used the TV and put some cloth down on the table it rests on!


Thank you for this lovely idea. I’ll try to use this.
