If you like the fun name, but have absolutely no idea what a gobo is, it’s a physical template made from glass, metal, or plastic that can be slipped inside (or placed in front of) a light source to produce a bright or dark shape, such as simulated window light or a tree’s shadow. During the 1930s, gobos were used regularly in Hollywood to add dramatic mood lighting to memorable shots in black-and-white films.
