Actor exposure to strobes
Does anyone have any suggestions to help shield actors who are working in strobes? We can generally find a handful that can 'tolerate' being in strobes on a continual basis, but after several nights, they burn out too. We've tried sunglasses and welding goggles - these are difficult to see through between [flashes].
Thanks for any input!
How about a really slow flashing?
Maybe not a strobe but a simple old hardware store plug-in blinker. I scared so many people taking full advantage of that very slow, predictable blink!
I have a very thick, large piece of plexiglass with a compelling display behind it. People would sometimes cup their eyes, forehead and push against the plexiglass for a better "Look".. the slow blinker shuts off the light, count to 3or 4, I step up to the plexiglass in the dark,guessing exactly where the customer might be.. the lights is restored and they and I are right across from each other (With thick plexiglass seperating us) retina to retina! WOW! What a sensation, even for me!
I swear it could feel some light electrical current running between our eyes! What a Thrill!
