Project “Z”- Part 1…

Today, UPS brought my eBay purchase of an Altman Shakespeare Zoom ellipsoidal.  Shutters work fine, need to buy a pattern holder for gobos and an iris. 

This is partly disassembled with the halogen lamp assembly removed.  I’ll cut off the casting above the gray tape to mount a strobe.  That will be exponentially brighter than the original lamp, for a 1/1000th of second, which is all I need.  Bringing a little bit of Theater to the Studio. Maybe even a little Hollywood.
