Hooray, it’s Saturday! I still can’t workout, so not much in the way of fitness will be going on. Still, this should be a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend as I continue to work on the home theater and home theater lobby….

Today the batch of 1000+ professionally designed slides and video clips for the home theater should arrive, so I’ll be working on that project this afternoon. I’ll be using the slides and videos to author ten pre-feature slide show programs (each of which will be burned to DVD) that will run prior to the main feature, just like in a commercial theater. While I’ve been waiting for the slides to be delivered I’ve been playing around with some different transition effects and background music. Howard Shore’s score from the Lord of the Rings trilogy is very dynamic and amazingly effective at setting the “movie mood”, so I’ll be using his work as the backing music.

Yesterday evening I completed phase one of the home theater lobby (photos & discussionupgraded forum membership is required). I’ll continue to make regular updates to my journal as I complete the lobby. Most of the remaining lobby equipment should be here sometime next week, and I’m really excited at how everything is turning out. I’ll add some before/after pictures to my public home theater page as I get closer to completing the project – probably next weekend or the weekend after, and I will update those photos as I polish things off with decorative touches and movie memorabilia.

Enjoy your Saturday!
