hay guys this is going to be a quick one but don't stop giving me suggestions I would love to read them.
in an 1 hour and 20 mins im going to do some sound work for an orchestra, this is a lighting question. it just occurred to me that there isn't anyone doing lighting for it and its in a room where there is no house lights only a IWBs and a load of parcans fresnels and such. so there is going to be a need for some lighting, and if the guy says can u set it up to me I will and i wont want to just do a simple wash thats to boring. i just want some advice on whats good for lighting an orchestra?
the lighting rig hay have there is a rather strange one because it use to be a night club (don't ask me how there getting an orchestra in there iv been thinking that for a while) but the lighting positions it has is low toplight and lighting all above the audience. its not the best situation but we like to make do
actually i can describe the lighting there way better, imagine a long narrow hall 5m wide with two very lone scaff bars going all the down it above the audience and stage, then you have an IWB as a FOH and then 2 socapex another the stage, we have a total of 24 channels of dimming and a large ish jesta i don't know it very well but i cant imagine it being very complicated its a jesta
