"When we were in pre-production for our recent short, A Man of Limited Emotional Means, I knew I had a bar scene that I would want to create a strong shaft of light in. So, naturally, I turned to RedUser and quickly to the Ask David Mullen Anything thread, which everyone here should totally read in entirety! David had already advised soomeone else in a similar situation to try an HMI adapted into a Source 4.

I did a little further research from there and found out that for about a thousand bucks, I could adapt one of my Joker 800's into the Omnipotent "Jo-LEKO". First you get something like an ETC Source 4 for about $350 and then you ket K5600s adapter kit for about $650 and BAMM you're in business.

I, and my Grip and Gaffer quickly fell head over heels for Jo-Leko. It bounces, it punches, it lights up trees from a hundred feet. Zoom it, flood it or shape it with the 4 internal blades.

Dude. I love me some Jo-Leko.

Did I already say that?

So, Thank You Mr. Mullen for opening my eyes to the beauty that is the bastard child of a stage light and a blue-collar HMI."
