A gobo is a simple stencil or template that is inserted in-front of a light source to emit the design of the insert. With this insert you can manipulate the shape of the light. How about a web gobo or one with spiders or bats for your next event? The possibilities are endless and the cost is minimal.

Have you ever told a scary story and used a flashlight below your face to tell it? This is similar to the dramatic effect you can have with uplighting. Choose to light your stage or house with some portable LED lights to create all sorts of looks. You can also change the colour and patterns of these lights to create different moods.



Want to showoff a scary video or movie in the office or your house? Feel free to use a projector and a laptop or other media device like a DVD player or USB drive to project all your horrors onto your guests. Combine this with some AtmosFX content and you can really scare someone!


Fog Machine/Dry Ice Machine

If you want to create a creepy look for your event, try out a fog/dry ice machine. It is simple to setup and easy to use. It will change the entire atmosphere of your event.
