So, here's a doozy and I was curious on everyone's opinion of this.
I'm working for a low budget opera production. I had a great idea for building my own hazer and i wanted to know how practical it is.
I basically wanted to use the principal of oil cracking, except using a water/glycol mix (probably just by buying some cheap hazer fluid). We can't actually afford a hazer, so...here's what I had in mind. It's semi-based off of something that I found on the internet somewhere...don't remember where.
I've read that oil-crackers used to use compressed gas. I do have access to an air compressor, so what my plan is is to hook up the air compressor to a non dim and hide it in the green room. Run a hose from the air compressor to a plastic gasoline container in the wings filled with hazer fluid. this would aerosol the fluid and force the fluid into a series of copper tubings, which would run from the gas can and be embedded into the set platforming. There would be holes drilled in them pointing directly up to send the hazing fluid straight up into the air. I would downlight it with some pars to create the effect of a green vnsp light wall...any thoughts let me know please....its the first time i've tried something as ghetto as this...and please don't recommend buying any fogger or hazer box because my budget is literally 300 dollars and i still need to buy gobos and color and circuiting, because we have no circuiting.
