- I'm doing a design for a talent show. Most of the acts are rock bands, but there are some dances and solo singers too. Anyway, I have 3 striplights DS for footlight, and I've hung 18 par-cans in a row behind the performers. This is my first time working with any kind of footlight (usually the strips are in the air as cyc lights) so I have no idea what color(s) they should have. The strips have 12 lamps each, 3 circuits, and currently have RGB roundels installed. I found a box of extra blue and red roundels, and also some clear and amber. I haven't counted how many, but certainly not enough to have one color across all 36 lamps. So given 3 circuits, and your choice of RGBAW roundels, what would you do?
- Also, I'm not sure what gel (if any) I should use for the row of par-cans. I'm planning on using them as blinders for the rock stuff, and also as pixels for some cool chases. (I'll be recording effects to subs on an Element 40). I could do N/C, or 2 color, or 3, and I could do any number of patterns. Symmetrical or not? I'm obviously clueless about this, so... help?
- Last question, I found 2 altman sky cyc units in the graveyard, and they still work, so I'm using those for the cyc. I've masked it to the point where there is only 15-20 feet of cyc to cover. because there are only 2 units (6 cells) the colors don't mix properly at all. I'm not going to need any amber or yellow cyc for this show, so what if I did:
That would give me the range of blue/lav/magenta/red, right? And would the colors mix ok in this arrangement? Ok, that's my spew. Sorry for any stupid questions, and thanks for your help!
