Do I have a good plan or am I just being ridiculous? For my club’s fall show I’m playing with the idea of building a translucent “mega-flat”. Ideally we’ll have a 12’ x 8’ piece. My plan is to use 3 sheets of coroplast attached to a frame of 1x3. The idea is to backlight it with cutouts of various scenery (houses for the village, twisty trees for the deep dark woods, etc) as silhouette backdrops so I would prefer to keep the cross bracing to a minimum, if not eliminate it all together. We do have a grid that I can attach it to, and I’m planning to brace the sides and weigh them down with sandbags. My concerns at this point are that the overall structure will be too flimsy due to lack of bracing, and that we’ll have to push it too far downstage for decent illumination. I’ve tested on a small sheet with an led flashlight and it works pretty well, but my light guy is working festivals all summer and we won’t get onstage for another few weeks. Any advice is welcome. Failure points, things I’m not thinking of. All that.
