I just had a shoot that was extremely low budget and I was by myself. I wanted the faces of the
people who were supposed to be watching t.v. to have colors moving over them as if they were
watching quite a pyschedilc movie but you could adjust this technique easily. I cut three holes
in a piece of construction paper, taped pieces of three different gels to them and, because I was
by myself, suspended this device with twine from the ceiling, tied it to a chair on one side and
made a tether of twine on the other side which I could pull back and forth or sway and see and
adjust the effect while operating and wearing headphones to monitor audio.[attachment=1741:attachment]



Yes, that is supposed to be a greenscreen but an actor did it since there was no crew. He redid
it later and neatened it up a bit and hid the tape.
