Open Frames | Light Gel Frames: 18x24, 24x36, 4x4

Open frames and light gel frames are a handy way to achieve many lighting effects and qualities on set or stage. Need to create a gobo pattern or window pattern in a pinch? A gel frame, some tape and a little creativity is all you need. Film open gel frames and light gel frames may also be used for applications such as stretching fabrics - including scrims, silks and reflectors - and for creating a larger, soft, lighting source with diffusion. Additionally, they're perfect for mounting light gels away from hot lights that can melt or bleach lighting gels to protect your equipment and keep your environment safe.
