First post here- excited that I found this forum! I need opinions/help on a glass projection screen.background/idea
- I am a musician/visual artist and I am preparing for a very unique performance experience.
A large part of that experience will be unique screen in front of me on stage. I am planning to have two white circle screens on either side of the performance, with a pane of projector glass between them (this will sort of be the wild card introduced a few songs in as the projections suddenly 'break free' from their screens and flow freely in front of me)Glass screen- or flexy film screen
I am mostly asking about projector glass or flexible projection film. Obviously scale is an issue. I think it will need to be front projected so that we will be able to move freely behind it.
Paint on plexiglass? Specially designed glass? I'm not sure where to go for this. A large sheet of glass (with some sort of structure I create to hold it safely) seems dangerous if it is constantly moved.
One good thing - It's okay for the image to appear 'ghostly' and not contrasty. All my images will be designed over black, to give them the look they are floating on stage. Think Disneylands Haunted Mansion ride ( see below
I can't post links yet (first post) but I am looking at 3m and they have some interesting solutions for flexible screens that you can put on a clear surface.Cost -
I want to say cost is not an issue because I want whatever looks best, but obviously I will have to gauge cost vs quality. I know there is a wide range of types from regular glass with paint, to glass rolled with special surfaces that make projection possible. Searching online wields so many types at different costs! And of course the potential scale of this sheet of glass could inflate the cost immensely. Also I know these are mostly aimed at corporate events, so the costs are high.Projector
