Filming and photographing against textured backgrounds offer several advantages that can increase production value:

Increased Visual Interest: Flat backgrounds can appear bland. Textures like brick walls, weathered wood, or fabric patterns add depth and visual intrigue. They break up monotony and draw the viewer’s eye into the scene, creating a more engaging composition.

Enhanced Subject Separation: Textures can create a natural separation between your subject and the background. This is especially helpful for portraits or product shots. By using a textured background, you ensure your subject pops and doesn’t visually blend in.

Storytelling and Mood: Textures can be chosen to evoke specific moods or tell a story. Rough brick can add a sense of urban grit, while weathered wood creates a rustic atmosphere. Choosing the right texture can subtly reinforce the message or feeling you want to convey in your film or photograph.

Dimensional Lighting: Textures play with light and shadow, adding another layer of visual interest. They create highlights and lowlights that wouldn’t be present with a flat background. This can enhance the overall depth and realism of your scene.

Creative Control: Textures offer the potential for unique and artistic effects. Experimenting with different textures can lead to unexpected and visually stunning results. You can control the prominence of the texture by adjusting camera distance and lighting.

Exposed Brick

Our exposed brick wall is a production favourite. The wall is texture heavy with areas of fading and sandblasted paint to give it more of an industrial/urban feel.

Reclaimed Wood

On the wall at the back of Studio 2, we have a large wooden feature wall that spans 11 meters and is made from reclaimed materials. We wanted to take this look a step further by fire blasting the knots in the wood to create more contrast making this an incredible background to shoot against. 

Rusty Corrugated Iron 

Near the roof we have corrugated iron which is another layer to the East London Industrial Warehouse aesthetic. This is particularly visible in our upstairs client area and during low angle shooting.
