You will need a housing if you want to increase the range, because creating some distance between the flash and the screen is what focusses the light output from the flash - you'll need to experiment, but basically you need to find the right focus point for the screen relative to the degree of light concentration that you want to achieve. With the bid hand lens I used on my second flash, I had the lens about 10 cm in front of the flash. It may sound complicated, but once you get the bits you'll gind it very easy to adjust it to what works best.
