As well as that would work for our show's that stay in the theatre
a light just won't work for this. The actor will have to be facing the audience and this show will be going to compete at other theatres so we couldn't rig up a light at all the theatres.
The in ear moniter is the best bet. I do own a wireless mic from my video production company and I think I can make it work with that. If I wear the wireless lav mic and the talent wears the reciver (typicaly mounted on the camera) and has a single ear peice. I'm pretty sure that's what we'll do. The budget on this play
has to go to all the other gear we need to get.
Speaking of that...maybe you guys can help me with the other elements of the play
. We need to have 3 tv's on stage
and 1 projector
(Yes...4 sources..I'm a crazy fool!) I was thinking of getting 5 dvd players (4 for video 1 for a black video) and trying to build
a device with 4 A inputs and 1 B input so I can fade
the video from each tv and projector
independantly (due to thoes stupid display options)(I know...I'm picky). This idea is incredibly complicated but I've already got a pretty good idea of how to do it but if anyone else has any suggestions it would greatly appriated.
