Does anyone know where I can order a 12' wide x 25' long (approx. length) medium or dark gray muslin backdrop?

I need it fast.

Anyone?

Westcott makes 10x24 backgrounds. BHPhoto and Adorama carry them. I like the quality. "Smokey Gray" and "Storm Clouds" are both medium gray. Storm Clouds is more mottled than Smokey Gray.

For what use? Maybe renting a studio is the answer.

If you are in a hurry, you will have a lot of problems finding a cloth backdrop wider than 10 feet. A 24 or 25 foot length will not be an issue.

And those wider than 10 feet are most often made of two or more pieces of cloth seamed together.

There is 12 foot wide backdrop paper, available in a limited number of colors, available. But unless you live in a large metro area with a very large theatrical supply house these will need to come to you via "special" truck freight due to the grand size.

Enjoy! Lon

As mentioned, 12' is going to be hard to come by without paying a small fortune. HERE (external link) is a 10x20 on Amazon that can be shipped next day..

I would search for a rental house that specializes in film production, they often times have large backdrops.

Have you tried eBay? There are many vendors which sale this size backdrops.

One such vendor: http://stores.ebay.com …re?_trksid=p204​7675.l2563 (external link)
