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!
For DIY projection surface idea #3, we went with a metal screen door material. Think of the screen on your front door, or the material on your screened in porch…yeah, you can project on it to create an amazing effect. As you’ll see in the video below, we took a fairly small portion of material and projected on it using a 5K projector. The cool thing about this material is that it’s quite pliable and you can attach it to many surfaces. Think about wrapping your stage, columns, or screens in it and shooting your projector on it to create a bright, metallic effect using any piece of content.
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.
