Theater Scrim Optical Effects

Fabric scrims are used often in visual productions for the interesting effects they create under different lighting conditions. White scrims are more common and are milky to see through for a dreamy ethereal effect. Black scrims are for that eerie holographic effect. When subjects behind the screen are illuminated, black scrims are virtually transparent.

Fabricated Theatre Scrims

We custom fabricate any size adding a sturdy perimeter webbing with fasteners like Velcro®, Grommets, Marine Snaps, or even rig it for our overhead tracking. We are VERY good at rigging ideas and are happy to help. All fabrics are pulled from 10ft(wide) bolts and our most popular, Shark's tooth scrim, is pulled from a jumbo 12ft(wide) bolt. Often, clients need very large scrims and we will seam panels together to make virtually any size scrim.

Theater Scrim Colors / Mesh

Imagine you are in the audience at a theater looking at the scrim. The audience side of the scrim is unlit and the lighting behind the theater scrim is bright. Each mesh/color will have a different resolution of the image on the scim and a different visibility through the scrim to see what is behind. Sometimes you just need white or just need black, but we want to characterize the effects.
White Shade: The densest, most opaque material and will have the best image resolution for painting and projecting, but poor transparency of back stage objects.

White Sharks Tooth: The most commonly used theater scrim material. Less dense, good image resolution, and very good ethereal transparency of back stage objects.

Black Shade: Is a dense Adam's family material. It is dense enough for painting.

Black No-See-um: Think black window sheer. Bad for painting, images are ghostly when entire theater and backstage are dark. Crystal clear when back lights go on.
