So I've got the job of drawing up the lighting designs for a few upcoming school productions and am pretty stuck for ideas. I'm using very limited resources, although it's a fairly small space, and need something versatile that will be able to cope with multiple productions of varying styles, as I often don't have time to get up to the rig and re-focus between shows.
The first show coming up is a dance production and so I had some ideas with that, but then the very next day there's a Shakespeare play that needs lighting. This is where I've got my problem, has anyone got any ideas of how I can use the lighting equipment to create something that will work for most shows?
Here's what I'm working with:
8 par cans
I've attached a basic layout of the electrics so you can get an idea of what's going on.
Looking forward to your thoughts!
