Rear Screen Projection for Animation

Is there a digital rear projector that I could   project a video a frame at a time  for animation?   
I   would   like   to   do   a   stop   motion   film   like Harryhausen   did, but  with  a  digital  projector,   but   I'm    not interested   in extensive   green screen.    Can anyone   help?   Thanks!

    Hi John,

    You can do this using any video playback software that allows you to pause and advance forward one frame at a time. Hook up your computer to any projector, run the video full screen, and use keyboard shortcuts to advance the frame.

    Hi. John,

    Quicktime, VLC, etc.  Most programs that playback video allow for frame advancing, usually with the arrow keys when playback is paused.  I believe VLC uses the "E" key.

    All projectors have the ability to reverse/flip the image. It can be used on a rear projection surface. However, if space is limited you may need a projector with a short-throw lens.
