I had a meeting with the photography technician Adrian Pawley to discuss the feasibility of my idea of projecting on to a collage. What I needed to know was how big the screen a projector projects is.
Adrian explained that there is no set size but that video has a universal 4:3 ratio, which is 16:9 for widescreen, which includes black bars. However he said that it would be an idea to simply measure the screen of one projector and then bookmark this for the installation of the project. We did this and the screen was 220cm x 167cm. Now I can simply begin filming and editing, whilst making a collage which is of this size.
