BB's World Projection Test at Lyveden

So the film is finally complete and last night Ryan, Andy and I travelled up to Lyveden New Bield to meet up with Ros and the projection guy, Ken. The aim of the meeting was to test the projection of the film outside and to make sure the place would be suitable to fit 60 odd people, a campfire, projector and screen.  We also had to have a good think about how the weather might effect the original plan to hold this event outdoors.  It was quite a nice evening although slightly cold.  The atmosphere at the wooded area at Lyveden is so peaceful.  You really feel like you're taken away to another time. This small area of woods is the perfect setting to have an event celebrating the life of BB.

We did some projection tests with two of Ken's projectors.  The second projector being the winner giving us a beautiful full HD projection!  This was something we wanted to get spot on so we're really pleased with the results! :)

So after two hours standing outside in the freezing cold with wet soggy feet our decision on holding the event at Lyveden was made for us.  With the biting wind and the muddy ground sinking under our feet we decided to move next Saturdays screening to an indoor venue.  The screening will now be held at Sudborough Village Hall, Main Street, Sudborough, NN14 3BX
It is a shame that we can't hold the first screening in these beautiful woods but we had to accept that mother nature was against us this time.  Rather than force everyone out into the cold we decided it would be much better if we were all comfortable and inside in the warm.  Fingers crossed there will be a chance to hold another outdoor screening at Lyveden later in the year.  I will leave you with a picture of the soggy ground and my sad wet feet so you can see what we'll be missing out on by having the screening indoors.  :)
