Once I heard/read adding velvet in front of and above made the room feel taller I knew its something I want to try.
Anyone else have a name for it, maybe tried it?
It would obviously be much larger and would look nicer...there would be angled pieces top and bottom as well...the image ~ centered.
It would be a fun DIY project.
I wonder if it would work?
I am going to be moving my screen back 2 more feet, and covering the wall, and ceiling in black velvet with black carpet on the stage. This will give me a additional 2' deep shadow box for the screen. The rest of the room (when finished will be all black, and blue GOM panels with dark carpet.
