For decades Prolab Digital has been Hollywood's premier source for film backdrops of all kinds. Our hi fidelity printed backdrops have appeared in everything from academy award winning films, to big budget summer blockbusters, to art house independent films.
We simulate cityscapes, outdoor scenery, urban environments, war zones, and even outer space --anything you can imagine. Large backgrounds can be produced by splicing panels together using our Miller Weld Master heat seamer. Using our Scitex XL Jet Grand Format printer, we can produce vinyl or mesh backdrops 16 feet wide by 150 feet long in a single piece. For outdoor applications, mesh banner material is used to allow wind to pass through the backdrop.
Backdrops printed on backlit UV lite material look fantastic when photographed. The set departments for the movies “The Fifth Element” and “Armageddon” used our backlit graphics extensively. In Arnold Schwarzennegger’s movie, “Terminator 2: Judgment Day," Duratrans was used to simulate stained glass windows in the scale model of the church. Prolab Digital can also assist in marketing completed movies. We routinely print the 10 x 15 foot banners that are used to market new releases in theater lobbies. Produced in quantities that can sometimes number several thousands, these banners are printed, packed, and bulk shipped to either a central fulfillment location or directly to individual movie theaters.
