I am new to lighting design so I am seeking the wisdom of this august community. This is for a high school production of Ann of Green Gables the musical. I am working with a stage that currently has 10 lighting areas, 4 down stage, 3 middle stage, 3 up stage. Currently each location has 2 fixtures at opposite angles from the front. My guess is each fixture is around 30deg from center. The angle above the stage is between 45deg and 60deg. All-in-all we are pretty close to a text book McCandless setup. There is currently no top lights. There are no gels in any fixtures. I am looking at getting some 6" fernels for top lights, a single fixture for each area. My question is regarding gels. I have a limited number of dimmer channels, I only have 2 dimmer channels per area, one for the front lights, the other for the top light. Is there any value to using different gels (cool on S.L. side, warm on S.R. side) in the front fixtures since I can't adjust the intensity of each fixture? Or is it best just to use the same gel in both fixtures? Any suggestions for top light gel color? Thanks for any thoughts they are much appreciated.
