hello all more enlightened than I- ever tried the textbook "roll-it-from-the-bottom-up-with-rope-wrapped-around-a-pipe" to get a drop up when there is no fly space/equipment? Don't have the money for the motors, etc. to roll the drops down, can't drop into a trough, and curtains leave too much bulk in the limited wing space. i'm thinking of either the "roman shade" approach (several trips to get the drop folded skyward) or the "roll-your-own" method- hopefully everyone will understand the latter. Any Help? Does the textbook drawing of a theory actually work in the dark with set pieces and people around?
thanks in advance for any wisdom and /or advice.
