The campus video guy just scraped together a chunk of change from the end of the year "use or lose" pile and he asked me to build him a new TV studio. Should be a fun little summer project. He wants a light box that he can hang titles of shows on. I've never actually seen anything like it up close so I'm not sure how to design it. I'm thinking a 1x6 box with a sheet of 1/4" white plastic on top. Is there a particular type of light source I should use? I was thinking of just wiring up a string of those little cheap porcelain bases. But I'm worried about the heat it will generate. Is heat a problem if I use a low enough wattage lamp? Should I go with fluorescent instead? Help!
