    Conveyor Belt in raised deck

    Hi all, A few clarifying answers to these comments. 1) The effect we want is to have a movement of people floating out on to stage continuously. IE, the actor floats on Stage Right, steps off center and does their bit (meanwhile the belt is still running), returns up onto the treadmill and...

    Conveyor Belt in raised deck

And from the stage floor to the top of the fly house it is only about 35', might even be closer to 30'. That's the reason why we can't fly a full drop out without sightline issues...

Of course, there is not enough space to fly out a full 20'...
