World Record Attempt - Largest Projected Shadow

Drew Colby is attempting to break the existing world record for the largest projected shadow by projecting a hand shadow face onto the largest cinema screen in Britain.



In order to break the largest projected shadow record he has to make a shadow measuring more than 16m x 9m, for which purpose he is aiming to project onto the IMAX cinema screen in London (UK) which measures 19.8 metres high by 25.9 metres wide. The cost to hire the cinema is £2000.00 (plus VAT) for one hour.


He has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds towards the hire cost. Please consider donating to make Drew's dream come true.
