Topic: Close up for stage...

I want to add a particular close up routine to my stage act and I want it to be projected onto a large screen so the whole audience can easily see.

Do any of you do this and if so, what it the set up that you use?

Thank you

Well you are going to need a camera and a projector (and possibly a screen). One thing that might work depending on your setup is to use a small "lipstick" camera and use a mount to attach it to your table. That way you have control over where it is aimed/focused. Output the camera to a projector and that's it.

What size audience will you be performing to? Larger theatres may already have a projector. You can probably find the camera pretty cheap, but the projector and screen are both going to be a little on the expensive side.
