Whether you're shooting video, film or still photography, defining your look can depend greatly on your location and finding the best location can affect the overall success of your production. Since the ideal location isn't always available or convenient, using a green screen gives you the option to replace your set in post, providing nearly unlimited options to define and redefine the look and feel of your final production.
The Digital Juice ChromaPop Studio is a portable, high-quality green screen solution that can help you tackle even the most ambitious shots. It can add high-end production value to any shoot while still providing flexibility to shoot your talent on location. These large format green screens allow you key out multiple people, large objects or both, providing a solution for jobs that would otherwise require renting out a professional cyclorama wall at a local studio.
Made from durable high-grade foam-backed polyester, the ChromaPop Studio screen is offered in two large format sizes - 8' x 18' and 12' x 18'. Because both sizes fold up to fit into a lightweight weatherproof carry bag, they remain extremely portable despite their size. They are lightweight enough to easily transport anywhere your production takes you and compact enough to easily store in a closet, corner or back seat when not in use. Each ChromaPop Studio package also includes a 30-sheet Sticky Mat to effortlessly clean dirt and debris from the shoes of your talent and production staff before stepping onto the screen fabric.

Both sizes of the ChromaPop Studio screens are designed to be easily set up and broken down by as little as a crew of one. Because of their light weight and high quality construction, these large-format green screens can be hung, fastened, or folded around nearly any wall or structure. However they are especially easy to mount on the optional Digital Juice ChromaPop Stand Kit. Obviously, with more people to help, setup and teardown could be accomplished even more quickly.
Fold-out, setup and breakdown of the smaller 8' x 18' ChromaPop Studio screen on the optional Digital Juice Butterfly Frame is equally quick and easy using the built-in zippers and Velcro tabs for a snug, taut fit.
The ChromaPop Studio is available in two large-format sizes - 8' x 18' and 12' x 18'. Both sizes come with the same stylish and convenient carry bag, which is lightweight and compact enough to carry and store anywhere.
Both ChromaPop Studio widths (12-foot on the left and 8-foot on right above) provide ample space for shooting multiple subjects and large objects or for getting a smooth close-up green screen tracking shot.
The ChromaPop Studio carry bag zips open to lay flat, making access to the green screen easier. It also offers both a padded adjustable shoulder strap and a padded Velcro grip carry handle for comfort and ease during transport.
The ChromaPop Studio screens have a series of Velcro tab fasteners along each vertical edge so that you can easily attach both size screens to a vertical pole or stand such as the the ones from the optional ChromaPop Stand Kit shown here. In this way, you can adjust the screen so that it is taut and smooth across its width, reducing folds and wrinkles to a minimum.
The top edge of both of the ChromaPop Studio green screens is sewn with an ample rod channel pocket so that you can hang the screens smoothly from a rod or crossbar like the one shown here from the optional ChromaPop Stand Kit.
The 8' x 18' version of the ChromaPop Studio has been specifically designed so that it can also transform your Digital Juice 8' x 8' Butterfly Frame Kit into a sturdy portable greenscreen solution. The durable foam-backed screen slips easily over the top of the Butterfly Frame and zips snugly in place in minutes while Velcro straps secure it to the frame's sides, providing a smooth, even shooting surface in minutes.
The Sticky Mat included in the ChromaPop Studio package allows you to keep the surface of your green screen as clean as possible. Crew and talent should step onto the mat a few times before stepping onto the floor of the ChromaPop Studio screen, in order to remove any dirt and debris they may have picked up on their shoes. The pad contains 30 disposable sheets. One sheet is usually sufficient for a day of shooting.

What kind of lighting should I use when working with green screens?
Any type of field or studio lighting can work. Here at DJ, we've found that fluorescents are easy to work with and provide a nice soft light for evenly lighting the ChromaPop Studio itself. They also provide excellent color separation when used in combination with tungsten lights to light your subject.
Do you offer a support solution that will work with the ChromaPop Studio screens?
Digital Juice offers the ChromaPop Stand Kit, a dedicated stand solution that works well with both of the ChromaPop Studio screens as well as with our smaller collapsing ChromaPop screen. The stand kit has rugged modular construction and comes with its own lightweight carrying case. It includes two lightweight adjustable stands that can extend to 9'6" when needed and the sturdy modular crossbar can be assembled in 6 ', 9' and 12' widths. The 8' x 12' ChromaPop Studio screen is also compatible with our popular Butterfly Frame Kit, giving you even more mounting flexibility.
Because of its size, the ChromaPop Studio seems like it would be difficult to set up and breakdown? Can I manage it on a one-man shoot?
We have designed the ChromaPop Studio so that it can easily be mounted by a crew of one. Because of its light weight and high quality construction, it can be hung, fastened, or folded around nearly any wall or structure using simple grip clips or the built-in tab fasteners on the sides of the screens. It is especially easy to mount using the optional ChromaPop Stand Kit or Butterfly Frame Kit (8' x 12' screen only). Obviously with more people to help, the task goes more quickly.
What are some possible uses for the ChromaPop Studio?
When it comes to uses for the ChromaPop Studio, you are limited only by your imagination. From basic interviews and virtual set shoots to music videos, special effects and Hollywood-style action sequences this green screen solution can handle it all.
How do I keep the ChromaPop Studio screens from getting dirty?
To help you keep your green screen as clean as possible, we have included a free Sticky Mat pad with every kit. This 30-sheet clean-room grade, disposable adhesive mat keeps your ChromaPop Studio clean by quickly and effortlessly cleaning dirt and debris off the shoes of your talent and production staff. Before stepping on the fabric screen floor, crew members should be reminded to step onto the adhesive Sticky Mat surface to remove any dirt on the soles of their shoes. One sheet from the mat should be enough for a full day of shooting. Additional mats are available for purchase."
