If I remember right, this project used an old trick for their backgrounds, projection. I think projected backgrounds still look best, plus, they’re not that expensive and can be easily changed.
Nowadays, they commonly use a tarp background or they just fill it chroma to be replaced in post. The problem with tarp is that when you don’t light it properly, it’ll wash out in some areas, and it can’t be easily replaced if you suddenly change your mind. Chroma gives you more freedom with what background you want to put but, you’ll have to give more time for post.
