Default Theater set up to look like video board

Ok, I guess this is where this goes. If not, mods please move. I am installing a projector and fixed frame screen. I want to make the area around it look like the video board inside the stadium. Mainly, the columns on the side, the clock set up below, and flashing led lights that act like an equalizer to sandstorm when I play it. If anyone has any ideas, please pm me. My walls are massive and I am installing a 135 inch screen. It would be good to dress it up! Also, I want to buy pictures of Williams Brice through the years and I can't go to Safran because he refuses to sell the pictures any way except how he has them in his frames. Something about he doesn't want anyone to copy them? Like they can't be removed from the frame. Whatever. Any info on this would be good. I'm going to contact the state paper and the gamecock club to see if they have anything. Thanks for the help guys

Also looking for info on how to make it as close to scale as possible. I know I could just get a picture put on that transferable vinyl sticker, but I think making panels would look better. My brain doesn't grasp how to make something to scale. Human anatomy? Sure, I get that but when something says its 1:25 scale, I just go blank. Lol. I'm hoping to have this thing done in the next two months. Really looking forward to any ideas and input.

The USC Archives should have pictures of the stadium through the years that can be copied. Call the Caroliniana library and see what is available. http://library.sc.edu/socar/

Thanks Diesel! Much appreciated! I want to get them put on those big pieces of vinyl that have the metal bolts in each of the corners. Then I want to get older pictures from Carolina history and do the same. My walls are 20 foot tall so I have plenty of room. I'm also doing a "Hall of Carolina Greats" where I'm putting up (hopefully) tons of 8x10s of great players with their autographs. I'm trying to get ahold of any game worn jerseys that I can now so I can put them on the other side of the hall in frames. My whole condo is going to be redone with Gamecock memorabilia I've collected over the years. If Safran would cooperate, then I'd have even more. He's just so proud of everything he has, and to some extent I don't blame him. I don't mind spending money but I'd have to stop paying my mortgage to be able to purchase some of the things he has.

As far as scale if you are using 1:25. Whatever the total number of the real artifact is, you would have to divide that by 25 (or multiply by 1/25) to get the size your scaled down item would be. If the real video board was 125 feet long, then your video board in your house would need to be 5 feet long. (125 divided by 25).

Unofficial size shows that our board is 124 feet by 36 feet. 124 divided by 25 comes out to 4.96 feet or 4 feet, and 11 1/2 inches (google is great for that).

I think it's going to be hard to make a scaled version on a normal house wall. If you were able to make the length 8 feet, that would only make the height around 2 feet 3 1/2 inches. It's basic math but gets very tough when trying to do every little part of the board to scale.

Good luck though. I hope you figure something out and look forward to seeing pics on it.

That's a big wall, but it's more of a length problem. A 20 foot tall video board would make your length almost 69 feet.

I wouldn't think it'd be TOOOOOOO hard to do. I don't know if I read it correctly, but sounds like you want to make it "real" and not just a sticker on the wall.

If I was you, I would build the surrounding area to be functioning. The sides/bottom could all be cabinets with the push/pop open doors so there wouldn't be any handles. The "glass" area I'm not sure what time of material you could use for that, but then just install LED lights to on the side to pulse to the music (that's really not that hard to find/do)

It's got a lot of edges/cuts/corners/pieces, but it's actually a fairly simply design I would think.

If this was paid by state funds, you should be able to find the actual rederings. I THINK it was paid strickly from boosters though, and if so, it might not be found. You could probably wing it by taking the size of the screen (36x123ft)

This is an amazing idea. If I had the space, I would definitely be copying you.

This is the best straight on picture I could find ... if you wanted to throw in CockyTalk shits and giggles ... you'd have to include the green stripe

If it's 1:25 scale, that means you're doing something in 1 inch of what is really 25 inches. Or 1 foot for what is really 25 feet.

It's great if you're doing buildings, cars, video boards to scale. It's horrible if you're doing ... your manhood to 1:25 scale

Here's a cool idea: A ticker below the video board, in place of the scoreboard.

I was just using 1:25 because it was the first number that came to my head. Lol. The screen will be about 10 feet by about 6 feet. I thought about making the thing from cabinets, as was mentioned, and just adding what pieces I need to make it look close. It doesn't have to be exact. Just want it to be cool as hell! As far as the green stripe/strip, I may build the thing and leave a green stripe/strip for the first pics. Then I'll paint it properly haha. Gotta show love to the Cockytalk boards or all of that fun we had.

This literally has me rolling on the floor laughing my ass off. It reminds me of a line from a movie or tv show that doesn't come to mind right now. Guy drops his pants and the girl says, "awwww. It's just like a real penis, only tiny."

Maybe. Hooked to my PC and running the ESPN ticker. That might be something there.
