Hi all, I moved into a new apartment and decided it was a good excuse to make a new screen to accompany the anamorphic lens that I had built a few months prior. Its a curved frame and Center Stage XD material. I absolutely love it. The masking is a simple manual solution, since I don't actually have a screen wall I had to be simple about it. Also, I guess it kinda looks funny since it sits off of the wall, but a tv stand under a tv would be sitting out just as far. The gf wasn't initially pleased with the idea, what a surprise right?, but after seeing the end result and realizing she no longer sees as many speakers she is happy. As with most of my projects I forgot to take pics all the way through, so here are some from when I remembered to start taking pics.
Putting the framing together, placed the CC in its spot because I was excited and wanted to see how it sat.
A side shot to show how the curve is established.
Most of the frame together and the inner border installed.
Tried to get a pic to show the curve.
Side shot shows it better.
Border, screen, speakers, equipment, wiring installed but not done yet, just usable.
The sides need work and masking to come.
Bottom masking test fit.
Side shot of finished screen. Masking off showing full 2.35:1. The masking is actually sitting on the sides.
Screen viewed from the entry.
Seating, PJ, and Lens.
Masked down to 1.78:1
Full 2.35:1. Sorry for the odd angle that I'm holding the camera, not sure what was going on there.
What the sides look like with screen masking in place.
What the sides look like when 2.35:1 is fully exposed.
I am incredibly happy with the outcome of this screen, and the quality of the Center Stage XD material. I wish I had taken pics from beginning to end, but I was just thinking about getting this thing done. Feel free to ask questions about it and for specific pics. I will get some screen shots once I figure out how to get this crappy camera to work with me. As you can see my camera lens could use a cleaning! Let me know what you think. A thanks to this forum for being here and all the members that keep it going, its been my crutch since I discovered it in 2006.
