Create a Space-Themed Background with Black Seamless Paper!

This project was initially conceived for a music video for the amazing performance art/rock band: The Viennagram. For one of the scenes I wanted a space-like background, however, I wanted to do it in camera with lighting as opposed to on the green screen. Our solution was to take one of my rolls of Savage Black Seamless Paper and poke hundreds of holes in it and back light the paper.
