May have a shoot coming up that will require very similar lighting effects as this video:

Just wanting to know exactly how this was achieved.... what fixtures were used?
thanks

It looks like they're just lekos rigged above each person with very narrow lenses like 19-degrees. The hard edge to the beam is indicative of a leko. They're also called source-4s. There is some haze in the room to make the beams visible. Beyond that, it looks like the lekos are on dimmers or a programmable system for the parts where they go on and off with the music. You should be able to do that pretty easily with dimmers or just switches if you want them on and off faster.

Yeah, I was pretty set on the lekos, it was primarily the end part of the video, with the much larger fixtures on the floor, and then the strobing, lighting strike like effect.... that as well seems like an easy solution. I guess I was primarily looking to see if someone has done this before and has some advice before I start ordering.... or even talk to my gaffer for that matter.

Kevin Zanit did something similar a while ago. That thread is here.
