I an interested in using stretched spandex to create screens around the venue to use as a backdrop for the DL1. Spandex works for both front and rear projection.

    Spandex works pretty good for front projection but the gain is not as high as a Matte white projection screen. I have been using Transformits (www.transformitdesign.com) gear and I am please with the 3D shapes to project on. I did some tests with spandex rear projection and it does ok.
    Another material that has an extremely high gain is PVC drape from Garrietts international (http://www.gi-info.com/). For large back drops this works great. This material must have a 2” pipe pocket along the bottom and must me weighted for several hours to get the wrinkles to fall out.
    More recently I have been Using custom Roll drop screen and controlling them using the Doug Fleenor (www.DFD.com switch box via DMX. I get individual control of the screens. (model number DMX6REL15A/30A)

    Thanks
