It involves characters being "affected" by vampires (BTW, it's a vampire movie in case you didn't know), and I want to do a bit of a subtle thing-- or maybe not so subtle-- with their eyes.
The -thing- that I want to do involves the use of a fairly specialized piece of equipment:
This is one rather high-tech example, but the geometry is the important thing. It's basically a circular or oval light that surrounds the lens. What I want to do with it is have two different colors on dimmers so that I can either shift the color of the eyelight or dim it out entirely.
And of course, I don't have the money to throw $500 or so at a fixture to do that, so I need to make one.
Not that I see that as a problem or anything. So far I've been pretty good at coming up with solutions to rather complex lighting challenges.
I already have a design in mind. Mostly scrounged parts, though I'll probably buy the dimmers.
