projecting snowflake design
« on: February 02, 2012, 10:13:48 am »

A client has given me a last minute request to "project snowflakes on the side of the wall and/or dance floor." I don't have time to order any gobos. Any ideas??

If you don't have time to order, try and find a shop to rent, or use a projector. There are a few cheap fixtures that allow you to use a transparency and make your own design for a gobo (Chauvet Gobo-Zoom LED). They look terrible though... best bet is a projector, expensive, but with no easy options...

Thanks john, I've got a projector but I'm not following you on how to project the snow scene.

You could use a Rosco iPro

Hook it up to a laptop, and display this photo full screen?

Alternatively, you could load the screensaver linked below onto a mac and use it for moving snowflakes. The preference pane for the screensaver will allow you to select a black background and the size, speed, and frequency of the snowflakes. You can also select a photo for the snow to "fall" over.
