Matthews 189093 Overview

  • 1Description

The Cucoloris is used to create shadow patterns on backgrounds or subjects. A flatly lit wall can be broken up into interesting pools of light and shadow. Lighting directors frequently use them to simulate sunlight filtering through trees.

The Wood "cookie" creates a distinctive pattern. The pattern itself depends on the distance of the light source and the distance to the background.

Cucoloris - 18x24" - Wood is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for adding texture to background This product's main use is to create a subtle lighting pattern on a background wall or set in order to add a bit of texture and variance to an otherwise flat or plain surface. Basically, you mount the cucolois (or cookie) to a C-stand or other support, shine a direct light through the pattern and then make any needed adjustments to create the pattern where you need it. Whether it's a flat wall or a set with flat lighting, the cucoloris is very effective and creating a more interesting and pleasing background. My only concern with this particular product is that the wood ply seems to be a bit thinner than I would expect, forcing me to be a little more cautious with the product than I feel I should need to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cool lighting effects This is a fine cookie to achieve some fine and interesting lighting effects in studio or even outdoors provided there is relatively dim ambient light and a reasonable flat surface nearby.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool product Great light modifier, Just wish it was about half the price.. BUT is it worth it? Sure as long as you use it more than once..(In fact I have used it about 10 times since it arrived)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cookie time! Well constructed light cookie but it could be a little thicker in the wood section, i am afraid it may crack cgetting in and out of the truck.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A lot of $$ for the size This product works ok. But a lot of $$ for what you get. It's also a bit small.

Are these Matthews wooden cucolorises treated in some way to be fire-retardant for hot lights?
Asked by: Dale
No they are not.

I'm worried about the possibility of the wood catching fire from a hot light. Why doesn't Matthews make metal cucolorises?
Asked by: Dale
I don't know if anyone does, the light is not that close to the kook to get the effect.
