Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating backdrops with effects glass, part of Video Gear: Lighting.
- Now Rich, gobos come in a lot of different forms,…metal, cut your own.…We got a glass one, and glass is pretty fancy here…because it's going to provide a couple different things.…- Yeah.…- Really good light transparency, right?…So you're going to get a little bit more texture…and granularity to the gobo.…And the thing I really like about these…is that the options for what is inside of them…are a little bit more nuance than what's possible…with just kind of cutting a frame, if you will,…in a piece of metal or a piece of foam board.…- [Rich] With a metal gobo,…it tends to just be a silhouette.…But now that it's a flat, clear surface…that we could print on, this opens up options…for full-color logos, complex things,…or just really interesting organic patterns.…
And as you see here, with the example that we're showing…on set, we can actually make this soft or crisp,…and it's an instant way to take a flat, boring wall…and splash it with a bunch of different color.…- Totally, now I have one word of advice.…These things get broken all the time.…
