The Curious Case of the Gobo Projection
Ever wondered what a Gobo Projection is?
I had no idea until I started working at Dreamwave Events. I found a Gobo Projection is a stencil placed in front of a light that controls the shape emitted. The shape can be pretty much anything!
This remarkable idea is simple, yet unforgettable and positively effective. A Gobo projection will make an impressive and immediate impact on your guests at any wedding, party or corporate event.
What choices of Gobo can Dreamwave Events Provide?
Generic Gobo Projection Templates in stock
At Dreamwave we have Gobo Projection Templates in stock of basic images to enhance a theme. Templates include snowflakes (perfect for your Christmas wedding or party) or stars along with my personal favourite, woodland. We used the woodland template a short time ago in “A Midsummer Nights Dream” themed wedding.
For your wedding party we also have a “Mr and Mrs” template to project to introduce yourselves as the newlyweds to begin your lives together as husband and wife. Alternatively how about:
Customised Gobo Projection Designs
Our design team can also produce a customised and meaningful Gobo projection that can truly personalise your party or event.
You could illuminate your initials and date onto the wall for your wedding’s evening party. You then get to keep the template as wedding memorabilia.
Or alternatively perhaps a business logo for a corporate event to give your conference or party further impact!
So the options of Gobo design are limitless and can be either simple and impressionable or significantly intricate. Each option results in an impressive memorable projection that is visually entertaining and revives the most uninteresting surface.
The price is dependent on the design intricacy and the materials need to produce the overall arrangement. Metal Gobos cost less and are generally used for basic designs. Glass is more expensive as it is required to support the more complicated gobo composition. This material allows the image to be projected clearly.
