Talk to whoever is making the gobo, they can usually help. I have done this before, it can be a real pain, I told the company that I had do it what I wanted to do, and they did it for me.

And that's really the best way to approach a keystoning issue. Merely give the maker a few pieces of info:

*) Trim height
*) Distance to projection surface
*) Offset angle of projection (how far left or right of center)

The rest is a walk in the park! (And yes, we still have a bunch of gum if you'd like some.)

See I knew this wouldn't be an issue. My boss is an idiot. Thanks all.
