We set out on a trip to Home Depot to find 5 items that we could use as creative, DIY projection surfaces. Oh, and we only had $50 to spend. We came back with 5 great options that we are super excited to share with you. There are a range of creative products and options that we found and the ones that made our budget are so fun!
DIY Projection Surface #5: Coroplast
We admit, this one is widely used already, but did you know you can grab small sections at Home Depot for pretty cheap? Love the idea of using small squares of coroplast as pixel mapping elements placed within your main stage design. They take light incredibly well so you won’t need a super bright projector to make it work. Take a look at the video below to see our DIY screen surface #5 and how you can incorporate it into your stage design.
Come back each day this week as we explore the rest of our list. Don’t worry, pallets won’t be one of them! While a great option for DIY stage design, we wanted to see what else is out there that can be used effectively in a projection environment.
Do you have any new, innovative DIY projection ideas? We’d love to see them. Drop us a line at [email protected] to learn more.
