You can do videos against a wall or a tarp, outdoors at night.
A laptop DVD player, Boombox for sound, and a projector draws
about 300 watts total.
A 12 volt-to-110VAC inverter costs $50-100. You need 300 watts is 25 amps.
You need 50 amp hours for a 2 hour video. Buy two marine
batteries (you need deep discharge batteries not car batteries)
for about $75 each and you're DEFINITELY covered for several hours.
Put the two batteries in a milk crate and wire it to a 2-wheel hand-cart.
Put a keg of beer on top of the battery crate for extra weight. :-)
Attach another two milk crates to the top of the cart. When
you get to the site behind the building, in a park, etc. put the
PROJECTOR on top of the 2-wheel cart, gets you 3-4 feet up
above the ground.
