To me it looks like, Hollywood type special effects. It's only the hair that lights up and I know of no glowing bow hair.

dunno

I believe in the behind the scenes video she said they just put a strip of LED lights on the bow, and then going to do some editing to make them have a more finished look.

Yeah there's definitely LEDS on the bow, specially in the close ups. The light hair has been added in post. With After Effects maybe?

 Hi Everyone

Thank you all for your comments... And OBSERVATIONS on possible achievements of the Lightsaber Violin Bow effect.

 

For Information...  I also had discussions with others here in the UK... and found-out ..

it May be possible to replicate a Violin light saber effect in both photography and video.  Whilst performing live with illuminating thin strips.  

 

>>>>Light Bubls will only possibly work on BAROQUE style violin bows???? Comments Welcome..

 

DamFino... I have NOT Yet viewed the... behind-the-scenes... Video.. But I aim to take a look this week.

 

Thanks Again Everyone...

I don't know how easy video special effects is to do as I don't have any experience with it but photography is certainly doable. 

 

You can get flexible strips to put on a bow on the inside of it so it illuminates the bow hair and just do a simple long exposure like this:

Touch it up in Photoshop and Bob's yer uncle.

Hi SilverHalide

+

Thanks you for your suggestions and comments.

+

I been looking at Strips for lights... BUT it Seems like a LOT of wire to Hide from display on a violin bow.   .... 

+

However I seen some GOOD Accessories 

+

Bow Light Accessory 1 of 3 = Cyclist Flusorsents strip 

+

Bow Light Accessory 2 of 3 = LED Safety Strips Lights I assume will work very well.

+

Bow Light Accessory 3 of 3 = Photoluminescent Glow Tape ... Fussy preparations...but  I assume will work very well.

 

AND I have seen on the internet... A group of CELLISTS who have Cello Bow Hairs in Florescent Colours... Possibly specially made for them.   Group of CELLIST = Apocalyptica

The Violin's LED'S  Change the color of the light that shines through the instrument, dramatically changing the violin's appearance.... Very Good for Starwars LIGHT Saber Effects.  Coloured BOWS also available...
