This DIY Projector Screen Is Perfect For Backyard Film Festivals

Using a trio of buckets, some PVC pipe, a blackout cloth and a few other supplies from the local hardware store, Wired writer Dave Banks decided it would be easier to make his own backyard movie screen than buy or rent one from an AV company.

Banks' DIY screen cost him about $US123 in materials, much less than it would have cost him to buy a kit from the web or a professionally-made screen.

Even considering he coughed up another $US125 for help assembling the screen, the total $US248 is still much more affordable than the alternative. It's not for those who would rather spend money than time, but it looks great and gets the job done.
