Was watching a video earlier of Alex from Photigy talking about his modifiers etc and he mentioned a company called Savage plastic he uses for using as a backdrop / base as well as using for strobe scrims, large diffusing panels etc. Here's a link to the product but more importantly a good video as well of Mark from Adorama using it 3 different ways for portraits

Uk supplier here:

May have to get a roll of this to try out. There are cheaper brands / sizes on eBay - search diffusing gel

Anyone using it already?

Agree, I've used these guys a fair bit as well, excellent service and price is about right.

Thanks both, couldn't see the funky plastic sheet though

They do sell boom arms reasonably cheap though!
