I'm wondering where the boomerang is in most follow-spots. Between the optics, or in front of them, or what? Let me try and clarify the use quickly. I've started preliminary research for the show. I'm considering using followspots on Amadeus to pull him out of the scene when he narrates/address the audience. Now I have yet to finish the script (Hey, I did say preliminary, right?), but I feel like these followspots should be gelled with an unrealistic, or almost dreamlike color, as he is reminiscing. To enhance this concept, I wanted to soften the focus, and add some sort of gobo to breakup the edge of the light. It would be, in essence, a circle, with a jagged edge. Now maybe this is really unconventional or just plain bad, but that was my first thought reading this script. Now, I was wondering, is there anyone to safely put a gobo in a followspot? Is this even possible? I'm also worried about beam diameter with this gobo. I assume it'd have to be a shop-built piece. And where is the boomerang in relation to the optics, I mean, otherwise it wouldn't be a gobo, right? Any thoughts are welcomed.
