We're currently using 26 Colorblast 12 TRs with wide-angle lenses and barn doors to uplight our stretch-fabric set. We work hard to achieve minimal light spill because of the 2 huge front-projection IMAG screens on our angled upstage walls. Our minimum trim height is 31' and we can only access the battens with a lift, so we're hesitant to light the panels from above unless we can do it with moving head wash fixtures (preferably MAC 301s or equivalent). Unfortunately, the budget doesn't look like it'll stretch quite that far anytime soon. The problem is that, while fixtures we have are adequate, they're black and are really hard to miss against our white stretch panels and greenish tan carpet. My boss hates the way they look sitting there. He keeps telling me we should backlight the panels, but we've tried it and it's not bright enough to compete with the 24000-watt Fresnel wash that hits 20' downstage. We're trying to find a solution that's less visible, easier to reset when we rearrange the panels, and harder to knock over when the musicians decide to wander around between set pieces during rehearsal. The panels are curved (18" deep for a 6' width), so the lights need to follow the curve at least somewhat. We've also talked about building hider panels for the Colorblasts -- maybe even including a base that we could bolt the fixtures to -- but I'm not sure how well that would work, given our iffy track record with building set pieces and the top-heaviness of the lights. So what do you guys think? Any fixtures we should try to demo? Ideas on how to build sturdy holders for our bars? Votes for downlighting with moving head wash lights? All opinions are appreciated!
