Loft Cinema - Hiden Screen
Uploaded Nov 07, 2008 17:03:16
Entering the Cinema Room. Storage and Prop Display on the Left, Career Poster Wall on the Right. Front Stage for Costume displays.
Screen is pulled back, hidden on the left side of the stage.
Sideshow Lifesize C-3P0
Uploaded Sep 17, 2009 17:27:55
Finally after more then 1 year pre-ordered I got my Star Wars Droids safely home. 3P0 fits perfectly in his cinema display box alongside the other movie props from my collection.
Loft Cinema - Screen Open
Uploaded Nov 07, 2008 17:03:30
Screen is pulled open. Made by Extension Concepts - the same company that makes Cirque du Soleil screens here in Montreal - the screen is
spandex like reflective material, pulled tight and stretched to a flush clean look. Screen measures an awesome 22 feet wide X 9 feet high.
Sideshow Lifesize R2
Uploaded Sep 17, 2009 17:27:57
How could I put 3P0 in a box and not have his companion keeping him company Here is my R2 standing guard in front of my cinema's poster wall. The lights and sound FX are SWEET, too bad for $5000 his head doesn't spin by itself like the toy versions. Looking at him is just like being at work at ILM hallways.
Loft Cinema - Left Wall Rear Display
Uploaded Nov 07, 2008 17:03:39
Left wall custom cabinets house all DVD and Blu Ray storage behind wood panels. Inside white boxes are cinema props from movies I have
worked on as well as all time faves like Alien, Gremlins and Star Wars.
Loft Cinema - Storage Drawers Open
Uploaded Nov 07, 2008 17:03:49
A close up of the drawer storage. 2 levels stacked inside each drawer front. I labeled all my Blu's and have them archived in my Imac for easy
searchability. Is that a real word? LOL.
Cinema Loft - Right Poster Wall
Uploaded Nov 07, 2008 17:04:07
On the Right side of the cinema room is my Poster Wall. Featuring the films I did the visual effects for. They are on sliding panels which
permits me to show them in multiple display patterns. Han Solo in Carbonite hangs on the corner wall.
Cinema Loft - Projector ON
Uploaded Nov 07, 2008 17:04:16
All the lights turned off, ceiling accents dimmed, time to watch a movie. Renovations lasted from April to September this year, but man, it was
worth it don't you think? Image is 22 feet wide X 9 feet high and projected HD 1080P using my PS3 and an Optoma projector.
Poster Wall Track
Uploaded Nov 27, 2008 23:24:20
I wanted my Poster Wall to look cool and allow me to esily change them around without having to unhook
the frames when I tired of staring at the same films.
Marc, my contractor, found the answer. Suspend the posters on giant door type panels.
This will allow for 3 rows deep and by sliding left or right, gives my "career" wall a great interactive touch for
my visiting friends.
My Career Poster Wall
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:02:07
I can now display the posters in any way I like with a flick of my hands
Curtain Magic... Day Mode
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:02:16
One thing that was important was to allow the windows to shine light in during the day or see outside when not watching a movie. The guys
built an pivoting extension to the right corner of the Prop Display Wall.
Curtain Magic - Now you see it !!!
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:02:23
Once you flip open the panel 90 degrees, you can access the cinema screen. Here you can see it tucked away in the corner where no one can
see it in it's daytime hideaway.
Cinema Screen Support
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:02:32
Peter anchored this support to each side of the walls and attached a high tension stainless steel wire using the same grips found on sailboats.
Cinema Screen Hooks
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:02:40
Here is a close up of how the screen hangs from the wire. The screen has 25 loops sewn into the top hem at every 8 inches or so. I bought a
bunch of keyrings at the dollar store, one to pass into the material and one that loops around the wire. I then connected both rings to each
other. This allows the cinema screen to glide back and forth with ease without causing severe chaffing damage to the material.
Pulling out the Cinema Screen.
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:02:48
Lucky for us, a local Montreal company... Extension Concepts, had the perfect material I was looking for. It is a kind of spandex used by Cirque
du Soleil and outdoor cinemas for the film and jazz festivals. For a 30 foot wide X 9 foot panel, I found the $2000 to be a really good deal.
Here you can see what the screen looks like when you start to pull it out from its hiding place.
Cinema Screen Stage Trench
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:02:56
In order to keep the screen from flying all over the place, Peter and Marc incorporated this cool trench into the stage floor. Not only does it
serve a purpose, but it also creates a nice clean straight line across the bottom of the screen when watching your movie or playing games.
Cinema Screen Top Trench
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:03:06
A copy paste version of the trench was also created in the ceiling bulkhead above the stage in order to hide the wire that holds up the cinema
screen. As with the bottom trench, this creates a clean streamline for the top of the image.
Broom Handle Pin
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:03:16
The SECRET of the cinema screen and what really gives this material it's jaw dropping effect comes from this
little gadget 98 cents at the
hardware store, 2 were installed at each end of the walls.
Hurry take the pic !!!! My fingers circulation is cutting off LOL
Attaching Cinema Screen to the wall
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:36:41
A broom handle rod was inserted into the seam at each end of the cinema screen. This rod gets grasped and held securely into place slightly
pulling the material and eliminating all wrinkles.
LED Props - BOTH lights
Uploaded Nov 28, 2008 00:37:53
The cool thing about 2 lights is the option of one or the other or BOTH If you want the aquarium look but see what the sculpture looks like,
you can add the top light for details. I LOVE IT !!! the fun thing about these nooks, is that I can store my props and bring out new ones every
couple of weeks, to refresh the room and surprise friends... one of these things is not like the other... LOL
