Cyc is short for cyclorama which is a curve backdrop that can be use to create the illusion of sky on stage. Most cycs are white because white isn’t visual in the background allowing for other background images to be inserted as background scenes. White cyc Hollywood can be a large curtain going all the way to the floor that fully encloses the stage on three sides. Successful and effective white cyc Hollywood needs to be seamless, clean, have no visual corners or sharp angles to avoid unwanted shadows and flaws showing up in the finish background.
