Thanks

Looks like a "hot light" flood for video.

Looks to be a Mole Richardson Nine Light PAR.

I would not have expected such an even circle with such a crisp line from a nine light unit like that. I would have guessed something more like a fresnel light looking at the light pattern.

But I have never seen such a light unit in person, let alone used one. You learn something every day ;).


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

I'm about to claim that the nine-unit light is actually turned off and we're seeing light cast by a single fresnel outside the picture. That nine-par would normally be used with a scrim, because it will cast multiple shadows.

Given the sharp edge, I would go further and say the wall is illuminated by a followspot. I have both. :)

Shadows and highlights cast by the door moulding and the hotspot on the doors/wall suggest the light is coming from the Mole, or something coming from an almost identical angle.

A lack of light on the back of the Mole and even the people suggest the light source is close to the wall. There is also light coming from the vent covers on the back of the unit.
