    I have a question for all of you. One of our owners had previously seen an answer on the IAHA boards, but she can't find it now, so i mentioned I'd inquire here.

    We are using a film projector in one of our rooms (not the old reel-to-reel type, one of the new ones that can be hooked up to a camera/camcorder). When they tried it at their home, projecting onto a slightly textured wall, the shot looked really grainy. I'm guessing that projecting right onto the haunts walls won't be much different.

    Is there a way to make a "screen" out of the wall. A sheet hasn't done the trick. I know that there is a special type of paint you can use (they've done it at my day job), but with the walls still being so textured, I don't think the paint will help. Would a piece of hardboard work if painted white?

    Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    One thing you might do is buy a plastic shower curtain ($2) and stretch it over a frame. You can front or rear project on it.
