You can't really tell but that animated gif of me in <I>who we are[</I> is actually a platform that was about 2' high with a square of plexiglass in the middle that had a light set underneath it. I thought I was going to go blind but it was worth it for the effect (it was bright but it's true I wasn't any brighter).
