FUSE mobile microcinema made a major step to starting its series in 2014 – purchase of a HD projector! After a lot of research (projector central = one great resource), advice from projector savvy friends (especially Tom Bray and Martin Thoburn) and much pro vs. con debating, the choice was an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 2D/3D 1080p 3LCD projector.
Working within the FUSE budget of $1,000 (thanks to the Ann Arbor Awesome Foundation), the Epson 2030 was purchased for $999 from B&H. Now to shift focus on what matters most - the content it shows.
FUSE receives an infusion of jump start support from A2 Awesome Foundation. Read the official announcement with an interview by Mark Maynard about the forthcoming series.
