It’s very easy to setup rooms in your area for home movie viewing. You can designate a specific room, repaint the walls, put in new furniture, and most importantly, invest in the right audio-visual equipment. Thanks to the internet and thanks to the digital nature of modern movie technology, you have to make sure you have the right acoustics and you have the right sound system.
That’s a lot to worry about. You definitely need to have some sort of checklist, so you can do this in a systematic and methodical way. You can’t just do this by the seat of your pants, and hope that somehow, someway, things fall into place. That’s a true recipe for disaster.
In fact, if you think that you have some clear idea, or you have some sort of natural eye for picking the right pieces of furniture, as well as, the right appliances to do the right job at the right time with the right audience, chances are you will drop the ball. Something will probably fall between the cracks and people who show up for your home movie festivals are probably not going to have the most optimal time.
Now they’re probably not going to tell you straight to your face that they weren’t really all that satisfied. You probably would only find out in the worst way possible. It’s only after someone posted some not so flattering review of your home movie nights on Facebook that you end up realizing that you have egg on your face.
The key to this, of course, is to not put yourself in that situation. Make sure you play the game right. You have to have some sort of checklist to make sure everything is as it should be. In other words, you have to go through this checklist in a systematic and methodical way, so people can have the experience you want them to have.
How do you make this happen? Well, first of all, you have to make sure you invest in the right equipment. Second, you have to make sure you pick the right room. Third, the room has to look good.
Now, the third element is the kind of element that most people simply blow through. They really do. They just assume it and they forget about it, and that’s why it comes back to haunt them. If you don’t want people, or haters, talking smack you, insist on putting in the right plastic decking boards. These don’t cost much money, but they really elevate the look of your home movie space. So, people cannot at least make a big deal about the appearance of your home movie space because it looks professional. It looks legit.
So, do yourself a big favor and understand that you have a lot to say as far as people’s experiences are concerned. Take this responsibility seriously and you will not be dissatisfied.
