Playbooks

  • Apollo Playbooks for use by lighting designers of all experience levels as either a stand-alone color and gobo set or a starting point for the lighting of productions.These popular plays are constantly being performed in high schools, colleges, and community theaters. The following recommendations have been assembled for use by lighting designers of all experience levels as either a stand-alone color and gobo set or a starting point for the lighting of the production. Keep in mind that fixture placement, focus, or intensities are not addressed as they are based on an individual theater’s equipment list or rental budget.

    The filter colors shown are “safe” colors in that they reflect the proper colors and moods of the scenes based on the indicated primary lighting sources from the script. Lighting design, being an art form in and of itself, is variable to suit the eyes of many people. If it is felt a recommended color is too deep or too light, change it. Also, gobo selections are up to the director or lighting designer’s discretion. Apollo Gel and patterns are good values. Both were chosen with reuse in mind for future productions.

    If you find a need for a color filter or gobo design outside these recommendations, please send an e-mail to marketing@apollodesign.net. Apollo always strives to improve the tools and products we bring to your performances.
