    Miracle in Bedford Falls.. Bridge. Cheap guaze cloth back projection. Uses my favorite little 25 buck computer to do the video loop. (raspberry pi)
    Can see the snow nicely in the theatre with fore lighting as high as 35%.. which is plenty for a night scene.
    And best of all I don't have to sweep up afterward.

    Very nice, can you provide any additional details on how this was created?

    There is a looper sd image for the raspberry pi that will play a video list for you in just about any format
    avi mpg etc you just load your vid on a thumb drive. The pi was connected straight to the projector via vga cable, and hdmi to vga adapter. The snow itself was stock free animation from the internet, and it was back projected onto black gauze cloth from fabrics.com or fabric.com The projector was an older viewsonic, about 2000 lumens. I cut a hole in the back of the set, and had a wooden shutter painted to match the flat. Started the loop and projector well in advance, and just removed and set the shutter to make it start or stop

    Nicely done, and on a great budget base, too.
