I usually put a toggle rail midway in an 8' flat and sometimes put two toggles in a 10' flat.
The director (AKA Laurel), wants five flats with muslin fronts. Being Laurel, she wants them odd sizes and odd shapes. One of them is 6' W x 9' H. Another is 5' W and 11' H on one side and 9' 6" H on the other. Another is 5' W and 12' H on one side and 10' H on the other. The other two are still under negotiation.
She want them with a muslin front. I'm going to size the front side of the muslin and dye portions of the back for color "splotches" when I shine a light through them.
Obviously if I have a toggle, the back light would show the toggle. Therefore I have to find an alternative.
I thought of doing the sides as triangles - with the triangles also acting as stage jacks. That way my cross rails can just tie the two stiles (and triangles) together. I could also have toggles tying the two triangles together in back of the light path. It would also give me something to hang the lights on.
Does this sound reasonable - or might there be a better way?
