shadow theater


Recommended Posts


looking to project 20m tall shadows.

I know enough about optics to know I need to "level" my light rays.

so either a lens/Fresnel, a very narrow lightsource, or have the talent "far enough" from the light.

without going into building my own, what light source is standard for this action.



I think this is my first post. but I lurk.

believe me when I tell you that I've done this with just about every fixture going, and nothing yet has given me more pleasing results than a video projector..

You're looking for as close to a point source as you can get. My suggestion would be a large (5k) fresnel with the lens removed - although I can imagine Smiffy's video projector idea working quite well.
