i'm about to do the same thing.
i did it years ago hanging reels from the ceiling to guide the film -
zigzagging in back and forth I connected the loop once it was strung.- a 4
minute loop. thankfully it was a big room.
i'm curious about this teflon business. would you mind sending any tips my
way???
i'd be hugely appreciative - i'm trying to convince a museum that its a
worthy endeavor - fuck video projectors!
thanks,
micaela o'herlihy
