All this for 30 seconds

For the last three days I have experienced what it is like to have a film crew come into my house for a one day commercial shoot. Over a year ago a friend of mine told me that my place would be perfect for filming, but up until this week, it had not happened. Since I was a newbie, I was admittedly a little nervous about what might happen to my place during the shoot or what the aftermath would be. Of course they constantly assure you that everything will be put back to normal but that still doesn’t necessarily calm your nerves.

However a good friend suggested that I write a brief instructional of how I accomplished this task because they knew that I documented the whole procedure. (Actually they were politely poking fun at my sometimes meticulous nature.) Of course they were correct and so the following is a brief instructional on my inexpensive, albeit time consuming, family photo wall.

Now that is all fine but most people’s budgets do not allow for new technology or uber-creative metal work.
