I'm a musician hoping to use a small projector for a live solo show.
The idea is to project some footage directly on to me and whatever else is behind me (no screen behind) as I stand up and play guitar (from a portable projector titled up at me from the front of the stage).
I've tested this out with a bulky old projector at home, and it seems to work fine. The obvious problem I'm encountering is that the light gets too intense after standing there for a minute or two (i.e. it's blinding). I had the thought of using some kind of lighting gel or gentle to diffusor to mellow and blur the light from the projector. Clarity in the footage playing is not at all a priority. It's more about movement and color.
Has anyone ever tried this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
This will be overseas, so I'm hoping to bring minimal equipment (maybe an iphone and a Pico projector).
