For the first time in anyone's memory, I am going to be using extensive sidelight for a show at my school. After finally convincing my TD that sidelight can actually be beneficial, I now need to figure out a way to hang them. Booms are out of the question because they take up valuable space in the wings, and we need all the space we can get for this large of a show. I have just started building a couple floor mounts from the thread this summer for the shins, but I am going to have to rig some sort of ladder mechanism for everything else. I know Altman makes hanging ladders, but at ~$300 per unit, those are well outside of our price range. A couple weeks ago when I was working at a local roadhouse, I saw that the show had hung a pipe hanging down from an electric and used that as a sidelight ladder, but I didn't get a chance to see how they did it (probably a cheeseburger). How do you usually set up your sidelight ladders? We have no grid or anything, so they would need to attach to battens and be as lightweight as possible to avoid overloading the lineset. Anyone have any ideas?
