Does anybody have any suggestions for an easy way to connect power, one mic, and DMX data to a movable set piece? What we have, is two cutaways of a house. Each one is on casters because they come on and off the stage, as well as have a house inside and a town scene on the opposite side. They are built and good to go, now I just need to wire them up. What I need, is one 20 amp circuit, one mic, and two DMX cords to each one. What I'm thinking, is that I'll be able to just hang the mic and dmx cables down the side (there's a small lip where they can hide and not be seen when we don't want them to be). The problem comes with the 20 amp power circuit for lights, etc. I'm fluent in wiring, but am not sure of the best way to do this. What I need for each cutaway is:
Just a 20 amp circuit for lighting, I'm planning on just using an appropriate sized extension cord and routing it so it can't be seen.
A 20 amp circuit for lighting, plus one other outlet for a small prop light. I'm planning on coming into a junction box with a short extension cord and plug. I'd then go from the junction box to an outlet via standard 12-2 wire. Also from the junction box, I'd use the other end of the extension cord to go to the lights as in #1. Is there an easier way to do this without having to cut an extension cord, especially as extension cords this size are expensive, and not readily available to us. I know that I can always just use 12-2 from the junction box to another outlet, but then what do I use to plug it in?
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
