    Hey guys!


    We are in the process of finishing our studio in Sitges - Spain and we thought we'd let you guys check out our progress while we are building our new Cyclorama.


    You can follow our day to day photo diary of our Cyclorama build here:

    Welcome to the forum! Had trouble viewing the cyc build which is a bummer. One day my studio will have a cyc and I am very interested. Let's face it; rolling up seamless is just a waste of time and money.

    Love & Bass

    A Cyclorama or Cyc is basically a seamless roll made out of wood. Generally 8-10' wide by 10-12' high or what ever size you can fit. Takes a lot of work and exceptional carpentry skills. It is worth it because you will never have to unroll another roll of seamless again. Just re paint the floor after a couple of session and it is as good as new.

    Love & Bass

    Right now, the foundation of the curve is done. It's about 8,4m wide. Next step is the fine mortar + plaster + preparing the walls and floors...

    Big up Phil!!!!!! That is going to be tight! You can probably drive a car on it. If you want to get silly look into an overhead lighting system.

    I trust your studio will be very successful.

    Much love & Bass
