You're very welcome.

I guess I could use foam core and cut a rectangle and score it so it folds up, adhere the space blanket as the reflective surface, then either use the idea in the video for attaching it to my tripod. Just not sure about the fishing line, but maybe that wouldn't show in a photo?
If you're shooting from close in, you could be shooting right over the top of the line; from further back, though, it might show, and would require cloning out in Photoshop.
Instead of fishing line from the top, a couple of small stands (like music stands with the "tables" removed; or cheap eBay light stands) could hold up each end from the bottom.
Yes, I was thinking the same thing! I just phoned the local photo store. I remembered I'd seen this reflector at their photo expo. He said he remembered it, and that Westcott was the only lighting exhibitor there that year, and he thinks that particular reflector "never caught on" and they don't produce it anymore. He could not remember the name of it either. I've just sent Westcott an inquiry, just in case; it's not on their web site. I will let everyone know if I learn anything else about it. Meanwhile, I will be making my own! THANKS!!
