SoftDrop Backdrops

No matter where your production is shooting, Rosco’s SoftDrop backdrops are the perfect background choice to bring any location into the sound stage.

Rosco’s Academy Award winning backdrops are now available using a natural, cotton fabric. Available in all of our Frontlight, Backlight or Day/Night Backdrop formats, SoftDrops can be produced as large as 40’h x 170’w – seamless!


  • Extra-large, seamless sizes available – allowing filmmakers to shoot from any angle or position avoiding visible seams.
  • Available using all of our Frontlight, Backlight, and Day/Night Backdrop formats.
  • Folded and packaged into a shipping box – removing the need for heavy, protective tubes and extra-long freight trucks and containers.
  • The woven cotton fabric, on which SoftDrops are printed, unfolds easily from its packaging and smooths out quickly as it’s hung.
  • Printing on cotton fabric results in an ultra-matte finish that’s inherently semi-translucent.
  • Requires less light to illuminate properly, which equals less time and energy devoted to rigging and powering the lighting setup, and less lighting maintenance over time.
  • Environmentally friendly: cotton substrate and water-based, non-solvent inks mean a smaller carbon footprint.
  • SoftDrops are flame-retardant.
