Just reading your updates, that looks really impressive, you've obviously been good for santa to be so generous. Could you tell me some more about the frame for screen, and perhaps some more pictures? It looks like you've used a lighting truss.........
yea no prob steve302
luckily i have a very supporting wife that is in the movie biz(indie films), that helps
you are correct, it is a lighting truss. the truss goes up 11 ft most go up 9 to 10 ft, i mention this because height was important to me. i bought an extra extension piece to make it 15ft wide. the bottom crossbar was the challenge, i had to find tubes that were the exact diameter (2 1/4") of the fitting. being in the construction trade i remembered about concrete tool handles, they were the correct size, light, strong and they snap together easy to make it a 15ft crossbar. after some modification to the bottom crossbar it got painted. it takes me about 25 minutes to setup and about 15 to bring it down.
i will try and post more pics as soon as i can.
