The Crystal Ball
Mediator would be without their Crystal Ball? Lady Zora is no exception, and
this was a challenging effect for me to accomplish. I ordered a 16" clear
globe from a lighting supply company for the globe. The globe effect will house
two characters via projected video.
It was difficult to get the globe, so I did not have much time to put this effect together.
|Above you can see the Crystal ball setup. I place a piece of frosted acetate inside the globe to act as a projection screen. This allowed me to project my images into the ball from behind. The TV was place directly behing the globe and hidden by the seance table. I covered the TV with black cloth to hide it. Under the globe I placed a green light that faded in and out curtisy of Jim Kadel's Fright light 500. This added an eirie effect to the globe especially when there was no projected images in use.|
