One of the most frequent questions we get is “What is a Gobo and What does it stand for?”. According to Wikipedia a gobo (or GOBO) derived from “Go Between” or GOes Before Optics -originally used on film sets between a light source and the set is a physical template slotted inside, or placed in front of, a lighting source, used to control the shape of emitted light.
In simple terms it is a “stencil” for a particular light fixture we use. There are 2 types of gobos: stock gobos and custom gobos. We have hundreds of patterns and images to choose from in our stock gobos, and if we don’t have what your looking for, we can definitely have it made.
How can you use gobos to create that “WOW” factor in your next event? Create texture and design to your dance floor, walls, ceiling, tables, furniture vignettes, ect.. Possibilities are endless. You can also use them to carry out a theme throughout your event. Example: monograms, linen or invitation patterns, and logos.
Gobo’s can also be set to motion. We’ve set the moon to gradually move over a tent ceiling, feathers to slowly rotate on a dance floor, and snowflakes to continuously fall throughout the event.
