But basically, get a light, get some venetian blinds, then shoot your light up through the venetian blinds to project it on the ceiling. Remember the further away you put the light, the harder the shadow will be.

In that still, it looks like they used the blinds you can see in the window to cast the pattern.

You should probably change your name to be your first and last name before someone sees.
I've been posting for almost 5 years, I think people have seen my REAL name by now. Thanks for the tips guys.

I'd say the trick here is the geometry. The light looks to be on a pretty steep angle, and the shadows are reasonably sharp. I'm not sure you'd get that with a lamp on the ground outside a window. Maybe this is a second floor location. Hmm. Anyway, I agree that they shot through blinds as opposed to the tape gag. The other advantage to real blinds is that you can play with the tilt of the blades to get just the right shadows.
It could be a bigger fixture further away and high up bouncing off of mirrors on the ground right outside the window.
