MBSi Unveil VFX Wall 20:40

News Image
Industry innovators MBSi introduce the VFX Wall 20:40, a modular inflatable VFX backdrop and the latest addition to their growing portfolio of creative production solutions.

Created through direct collaboration with key personnel from within the production community, the development of the VFX Wall system is a perfect example of how MBSi are delivering on their close working relationships with production crews.

Having already proven itself on a number of major productions, the VFX Wall 20:40 is the first in a new range of modular, inflatable visual effects backdrop designed specifically for use within the film and television industry.

Exclusively available through, and fully supported by the team at Pinewood MBS Lighting, VFX Wall 20:40 is supplied in a choice of VFX Wall Green or VFX Wall Blue VFX, depending on the requirement. Flexible and adaptable, the system is ideal for creating expansive visual effects walls across backlot sets or for creating privacy screens to protect from prying eyes.

Simple to operate and easy to maintain and perfectly adapted for studio or location based work, the system requires almost no maintenance or specialist training. Under normal conditions, the inflation/deflation time is around ten minutes and once set up the system’s built-in air pump monitors and maintains full inflation. For easy transportation between sets each wall is supplied with its own case, custom designed to house the deflated wall.

Unlike traditional systems, VFX Wall is completely reusable and installation leaves little or no impact, making it a far more environmentally conscious option.

Available in 20ft by 40ft sections, the modular, tough, waterproof blocks can be mixed and matched to create all manner of VFX backdrops, and with additional sizes arriving shortly, there is no limit to the creative possibilities of the system.

Speaking about the VFX Wall, PMBS Technical Director Steve Howard said: "Through our close working relationships with crews we are able to gain in-depth understanding of specific challenges facing our industry. The VFX Wall 20:40 is an example of how MBSi has developed an idea to deliver a practical, effective solution which has already been a key component on a number of high profile film sets."
