Just wanted to share this with you guys. :)
My company (ad agency) recently had this huge seamless backdrop in our building painted white to use for a client job. You could probably fit a car on it. The curved part is made out of plywood and plaster and you have to wear foot protectors to walk on it (boxes in foreground). They said I could use it any time but unfortunately I don't have any lighting equipment yet.  :-\

You can buy a 12 feet's arctic white background also. I think it cost around 150$. I have the 6 feet's version (around 80$) and it come also in 9 feet's what's fit for most users. It's made for photography, but very difficult to move around without the stands for holding the background rolls. The roll is like 100 feet's long

This would be a good opportunity :)
It actually overwhelms me since I work so small right now with a piece of curved white poster board outside in bright cloudy conditions for good lighting of small isolated objects. My company does have a couple of umbrella lights but I think the bulbs are wrong, too dim.

 It is called a Cyclorama and it helps the control of the light fall off with the sweep, much easier to make even light on background. The bigger the sweep the easier the lighting. Check out this company if anyone wants to build their own without being a master dry waller. http://www.calumetphoto.com/Studio/Backgrounds%2C+Coving%2C+Cycloramas/Backgrounds%2C+Coving%2C+Cycloramas/Cycloramas_Coving?cm_mmc=Calumet%20US-_-Google%20Adwords-_-Studio-Gear-_-Cycloramas%20&%20Coving&a=CA01&t=CA01
