ZSM - Mirrors made of QSM - Magic Mirror Film

 

Effects of reflected projectionThe projections cannot directly be realized on the ZSM - Magic Mirror backdrops, that can however reflect the projections effected on other surfaces or allow the vision of projections in transparency.

Effects of reflected projectionThe reduction of the illumination on the subject standing behind the ZSM - Magic Mirror backdrop reduces the vision in transparency through the mirror.A.

Effects of reflected projectionThe use of three different levels (the reflection of the projected image, the real image in transparency, the rear-projected image) that are adjustable in their brightness and visual intensity, allows the realization of some very interesting effects. Particularly, this scheme allows the real performer to interact with the reflex on the ZSM - Magic Mirror of projected subjects that assume so a three-dimensional illusion.A.

Effects of projection in transparencyMore simply, the ZSM - Magic Mirror backdrops can be used for alternating the vision of the reflected images to those of objects that are behind the backdrop, that can be made appear and disappear at pleasure with the use of the illumination.Or, the objects that are behind the backdrop can be replaced by rear-projected images.B.

They are custom manufactured with the special light mirroring / transparent film QSM - Magic Mirror Film.

For mirror effects and reflected holographic projections.

Features
alternation among the mirror and transparency effect obtainable with the illumination
with the projections: they can be used for effects of reflected projection or in transparency
the subjects that are behind the backdrop can be visible in transparency and can interact with the reflected image of a projection or with that of other subjects set in front of the backdrop

Frame
1 - made of Aluminium trusses
2 - a custom made 9TM - Frame for scenography
The flexion of the frame has to be imperceptible or it won't be possible to adequately stretch the mirror that will show folds and deformations of the reflected image.
The mirrors have to be stretched along the four sides in a uniform way.

Perimeter
and dimensions
of the mirror
WCS - Strap + WOC - Eyelets + WPE - Perofix 27 cm
In this case the mirror must have a size of 5 cm per each side less then the inside area of the frame to allow the correct stretching of the WPE - Perofix 27 cm.
It is needed a perimetric masking, whose dimensions have to be of 20 cm per side less than the inside area of the frame, in order to hide the creases due to the punctual tension of the elastic hooks on the eyelets.
