Project stars on ceiling
« on: April 13, 2021, 11:33:49 am »

Looks like they want to turn my concert room into a large dining room for now. And they want to have stars on the ceiling. And they don't want to spend much money. Any suggestions on cheap lighting/projectors to do this? I don't think my stage lights will do a good job.

Room is around 100' x 100' with 30 - 35' ceiling

Thanks

Sounds like a bedroom night light.

Bliss used to make a product that might work, but it will probably take several of anything that you choose.

Hi John, here are a few suggestions in no particular order:

- Impressive: Fiber Optics
- Retro: Mirror Ball
- Cheap: LED “dot” fixtures (ADJ REVO Series, etc)
- Expensive: Lasers
- More Money than Brains: HES DL3
- The “Right” Way: S4s with gobos or Rosco Image Pros
- Bringing the Power of the Stars to your Client: HES ShowGun 2.5
- Quit While You’re Ahead: Hang Cardboard Stars

LEDs, lasers, and other absurdities aside while I agree the S4 is probably the textbook solution here they can often struggle with brightness and focus here when doing effects such as this.  I’ve seen permanent and semi-permanent use of fiber optics that were very effective, but sometimes going with something from the props/decoration department ends up looking best.  Good luck!
