I recently began shooting for a news magazine show with a producer who is in love with motion, whether it be camera movement, intelligent lighting, whatever. So, I'm wondering if there's a way to jimmy rig a Rosco rotating Gobo attachment (see here: http://www.stage-dir...03/light.shtml) to a Dedolight for background effects on stand-ups and interviews. The Dedolight appeals to me because I don't like the idea of hauling around a Source 4 Leko for something so "simple"! Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

A cookie and a mirrorball motor is easy, cheap.

I don?t think it would work with a Dedo because there is no gobo slot before the optics. Gobo rotators are usually used in Lekos, which put out a similar quality of light as a Dedo, but in a larger package.
