We've been donated a used pleated house curtain.
Seeing as how we are lacking flying facilities, do you think it might be possible to rig it to one of our oleo drops?
Has anyone had any experience doing this?
Is it possible to send haze down a pipe which is released through many holes in the stage deck?
Many smoke machines have ducting attachments for this sort of thing but I haven't found any such thing for hazers. Any reason for this?
In the case of backdrops and scrims, why not just use a roller system where the fabric is rolled around a cylinder above the stage?
Are there any noticeable differences between such a system and a traditional fly tower?
I've been trying to find photos of stage deck winch tracks for some time now, but it's impossible to find any material online. Does anyone on the forum have any photos which show the inner workings of such a system?
How could we go about building something like this?: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/West-wing-enchanted-rose-at-Be-Our-Guest-Restaurant-600x450.jpg
It's most likely Pepper's Ghost, but would the glass be concealed within the bell jar?
Thanks for the reply!
I guess I could have been more specific.
Basically, we're using 5 hand winches to move set items across our stage. So I guess it's not really automation.
Ideally we'd like to be able to assemble and dismantle the show deck quickly for when we move to our sister theatre...
