Just recently for some unknown reason have been able to start getting stagecraft digest again - this given my firewall finally accepts them. Yep, not much changed... what appears in the list of what's posted doesn' t have numbers on it below, the search still don't work, still fighting with Frank, length of one's title following their name is still going on, phillips verses square drive debate still going on - this all years later. None the less there was an interesting item in #1959 that caught my eye, than further discussion. Good stuff for people to keep in the back of their mind - stuff I never thought about how they did it on either but find fascinating.

It was before 'videos' were ever heard of say in the '60s and or '70s. It looked like someone put a drop of water betweeen two gels and tapped it to make the blot change in shape. Any input would be most appreciated!

Here is a website that explains it. http://www.phinnweb.org/retro/garage/lightshows.html I saw a show about this recently but for the life of me I can't remember what it was. I do know that the guy used this technique on an overhead projector. Pretty cool.
