How to Use colorful, textured plastic cups to create a cool film lighting effect
This is a creative idea for a great light effect for any video project. If you're a cinematographer and are open to knew and creative ideas (and cheap!), then this colorful, moving lighting effect is perfect for your film. You'll need three plastic cups, a 5/16-inch metal rod about 2-feet long, gaffers tape, packaging tape, drill and a light. You can get the plastic cups from the dollar store, which won't cost you more than three bucks! They need to be translucent and have the colors you want, with cool patterns.
Chappy used this lighting effect for his spoof video of the Rick Astley song "Never Gonna Give You Up" from 1987. It's called "Rickroll Reloaded". Check it out!
