Commercial for United Optics : "On this shoot, I had a Joker-Bug 1600W and a Joker-Bug 800W with Chimeras, and a Joker-Bug 800W equipped with the Bug-A- Beam . This last one was reflecting over two K-Flect mirrors : this was a very easy to install and flexible backlight. I enjoy to work with the Bug-A-Beam 800W because sometimes, you just need the very narrow beam and the shutters of a follow spot, and as I already have a Joker-Bug 800W, this is a very simple and affordable conversion."

Feature Film Das Kleine Vergnügen : "This was a low budget feature film, so I had to keep things simple. We had only one 4K and two Joker-Bugs 1600W as main units. The Joker was very handy for shuffling around in front of the windows, what we usually had to do for every new shot. I appreciate to work with the Joker 1600W equipped with Zoom Beamers. For me, it’s the best configuration for getting a lot of output from a rather small unit, not too heavy when you need to rig it. No need to change the lenses if you want a different beam size. Finally, the quality of the spread is amazingly good, so I normally use just a light frost frame like highlight."
