    I am trying to put together a video using a projector as lighting.

    Something in this style:
    [ame=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyepYaE_JS4]Katy Perry Firework - A Capella Cover - Mike Tompkins - Beatbox - YouTube[/ame]

    The problem is that my projector is DLP technology, so you can see the horizontal lines moving.
    I am shooting with Canon D60 and Olympus PEN PL-1.

    Can somebody help me with advice how to get rid of the horizontal lines? I tried adjusting shutter speed but no success.

    Also, do you think they used extra lighting in the video above?

    After experimenting with many projectors, the best result was achieved with LCD projector.
    Here is the result of one day filming and a month of editing.
    I hope you like it!
