I will try to explain my task to the best of my ability, but without measurements and angles to reference, we'll have to speak theoretically and see if we can come up with a solution.
My "high ups" want me to light my speaker in a way such that there is a black "void" between them and the upstage-most wall (we use as a 'cyc-like' projection surface). Our Apron is 9 ft. deep (all speaking done from here), from plaster line to cyc is about 20 ft. ... not deep at all. Bounce light catches our hand drums, guitars on stands, avioms, etc and they would like for this to not happen. As the plot stands now, the Front Light for the Speaker is on the last electric, furthest from the stage, creating the shallowest angle in the house. My first thought is to increase the angle, minimizing the reach of the bounce light, but this is a huge amount of work for the results to be negligible. On top of that gamble, we are the host to our video venue and I do not want to create downward eye-shadows or that no-neck look for our speakers. It doesn't help that they just refinished our stage, granted to a darker color or wood, but nonetheless refinished and fairly shiny (no one wanted to listen to the Theatre guy that asked for a black floor!).
