Designed to be a companion to GAM’s original TwinSpin, GAM Film/FX adds a continuous loop motion as opposed to the double rotation of the TwinSpin.GAM Film/FX provides a much needed additional range of special effects possibilities.
There are three control choices; plug into 120 or 220 volts, or use just about any dimmer to vary the speed and cue. You can also plug it directly into the main power and operate at full speed. If you have selected the model with in-line speed control, you can select the operating speed.
The GAM Film/FX like the TwinSpin II is built on a stainless steel housing to ensure stability of the drive mechanism in the high heat environment of an ellipsoidal spotlight. The precision machined drive rollers coupled with a high performance low voltage motor provide reliable performance. The unique snap in design, (Patented) makes it very easy to change the FX/Loop and the large and growing collection of designs will make GAM Film/FX one of the most flexible special effects tools you have ever worked with. Pick from the large selection of off-the-shelf designs or create your own custom effects in either stainless steel or polyester GAM has the tools you need to demonstrate your creative imagination.
Caution, we do not recommend the Film/FX machine for continuous use in display and theme park applications because the loop life is approximately 100 hours, more than adequate for shows using the effects for short periods of time during a production but not sufficently long enough for continuous display applications. GAM recommends the SX4 for continuous duty applications where these same loops will have an expected loop life of 2,000 to 4,000 hours and more.
