Was just browsing a few threads on here to get ideas on this subject.
I am an audio head, not a lighting guy. Our lighting person is out for a bit so I'll be covering this one, that and its a new event/location that we never tried before.
Event is a concert that should be ending at dusk, small stage, 4 piece band. Sun is not in a great location, semi-behind the stage off house left. Not ideal, but I can't seam to figure out how to move the sun fixture*.
Anyway, power at this location is limited. I am limiting myself to 2, (maybe 3), 20amp circuits for lighting, and they will be about a 25 foot run from the nearest source. I have a few old portable dimmer units hanging out in the shop that work.
First, should I bother attempting any stage lights? There are no hanging locations, no truss to be brought in. I can do a side pipe and front floor lights.
Second, if I attempt anything, our lighting fixutre inventory is mostly parnels and source4. There is a pile of older 100watt flood cans that are in good shape as well. Throw up a few front floors or just forget it? What insturments should I even use?
I am on the fence about this being worth it. Its been overcast and hazy the past few days, but I hope that I can get to the event location at show time to watch the time/lighting and get an idea. I Know I can make something work, I'm just looking for input.
TIA guys. I have been reading these forums for a long time. Bout time I post something.
