My theater is fortunate enough to have about 100 painted drops donated from a scenic shop in NYC many years ago. I've recently taken over as Theater Manger here and am working my way through fixing the old guy's nonsense. The drops are currently stored in the hampers they were transported in and many of them have just been gathered up and thrown in random hampers after use (read not folded just balled up). I'm getting ready to go through the process of getting them out, hanging them, photographing, measuring, and then properly folding and storing them. I'm considering how I want to store these long-term. In the hampers they take up the floor space of an area approximately 50' x 40' which was meant to be a rehearsal space. I'm thinking I'll build deep shelves along the walls of this area to store them, (2' x 2' x 2' cubbies should work) but I'm worried that maybe the hampers are providing some kind of protection for the drops. I've looked at those vacuum sealed "space saver" bags as an option to protect them. Does anyone else out there have a large drop inventory and how do you store it? tldnr: I have a lot of painted drops and want to store them in a way that protects them but does not take up a lot of floor space.
