We’ve made it easy to shoot commercials, films, tv shows, pilots, music videos, shorts, and VR work on our stage! Our LightCube is a curved cyclorama, pre-rigged with a fabulous 28'x28' Top Light LiteGear LED panels with DMX control, and diffused with The Rag Place Magic Cloth.

This is a $100,000.00 rig, that will save you thousands in time and labor trying to achieve the same look!
