Make Use Of Those Christmas Lights For A Starry Night Light up the ceiling using string lights with small bulbs to create a starry night effect. Hang Christmas tree lights from the ceiling and let them dangle down. This is especially well suited for dimly lit events and for rooms with high, dark-colored ceilings. ■ Go Big Or Go Home When It Comes To Gobo Lighting A gobo (or GOBO) is derived from "Go Between" or "Goes Before Optics" and is a graphic template that's placed in front of a light in order to display a shape. These days, gobos have become a standard offering at most convention fa- cilities. And, when it comes to using them, go big or go home. Use shapes that are easily repeated and can dress up a blank wall, ceiling or floor. ■ Image Example Shared By Virginia Beach Convention Center Stage Spot offers an easy-to-use online site for creating your own custom gobo: www .stag gobocreator/ gobocreator .html 08-26 CS FEB 2014_Layout 1 1/31/14 3:46 PM Page 20
