getting a chance to play in the black box

a few weeks ago, when i was reupholstering chairs, i mentioned that ryan and i were helping a student at the university with the set and lighting for her senior capstone show.  

the show revolved around a confessional booth in a church so we helped piece together things for her to make a little set.  we also had some fun with the lighting too to make it look like a church with stained glass windows.

it was fun to help her with her show and it turned out great!

as a thank you gift, she bought us these adorable gobo holder keychains with custom gobos inside with our initials!  it was the cutest thing.  i had no idea anything like these even existed!  

if you're not into lighting like us, gobos are metal templates with patterns cut out and we place them in gobo holders which go into leko lights to project patterns.  we can pair them with gels to color them.  for the student's show, we used several different types of gobos.  we projected the look of stained glass windows onto the floor and projected the look of a circular church window on the cross on the back wall.

love, laurie

That set is really nice. I think I would have liked to see that show. You guys are so clever. That thank you gift she gave you was very unique, thoughtful, and fit how you lighted the scenery.
