Default 50th Birthday Party - Outdoor Movie & Slideshow

This was a "surprise" 50th Birthday Party. The "surprise" part was the set up of our screen. The wife hired us, said she would be putting together a slideshow to play before a movie. I detailed my problems with screen size in another thread so I won't go through it again here. Basically we used a 15' screen, could have easily used a 20'

Slideshow went well, showed Shrek afterwards. Not many people watched the movie, but the homeowner was very impressed, said she wanted to have us back again.

Screen setup (inflatable Velcro jump wall on the left, dang I wanted to try that):



View from the back:



Lighted basketball/hockey court (in the homeowner's backyard no less, $$$):

Nice setup, and Holly cow on the party! I think the screen size looked OK, it is not like you have 500 people there.
Nice market, hopefully she will tell her friends about you!
Just because they didn't watch the whole movie, it is not a bad thing. Sometimes people need background entertainment at an event to keep things going. I am sure you added to the success of her party!

Neil, you're right, and I'm hoping it turns it more (and well paying) work!
