It's a universal spot projector made by Bowens for Profoto
It attaches to the Profoto strobe
It's designed to shine a focused beam through a gobo disc
This shot didn't have a gobo, just the beam
Unfortunately no longer available
When Bowens sank, the projector went down with the ship

Tom:

I love your nostalgic Song and Toast set; how did you create the smoky atmosphere -- toxic fumes or water vapor or ...?

I'm not sure of the consistency of the model's lipstick style vs. nail polish though. My mother wouldn't have been caught dead outside in the late '40s and early '50s without at least nail polish and usually gloves, even if it were the end of the world. If the intended setting is '42 to '45, I was too young during the war to notice whether nail polish was deferred for the war effort, but then so would have been heavy lipstick, I think. Now I'm going to have to do some research to check my memory.


Thank you for the compliments.
It's fun to build & shoot a set
As I remember my mother telling me, during WW2 nail polish was an extreme luxury but local authorities would relax restrictions on lipstick. Plus most women worked in factories & such for the war effort so any nail polish would be wasted on working hands. But a little lipstick on a Saturday night was good for the general morale.
The "smoke" was created with a haze machine. Different than a fog machine. Rather than large clouds from a fog machine, the haze machine creates just enough haze so the light effects can be seen (Like the small spot light in the background)
Since it's a WW2 look, the haze looks like cigarette smoke just because.....
By the way, the Fresnel lights are purely for props. There's a small speedlight inside with just enough power to illuminate the Fresnel lens.
The main lights were two giant umbrellas. One camera right up & 45 degrees down and one on axis behind me shooting directly into the scene
