Alright so a bit about the theater first. It's Black Box. I've got 5 catwalks with a batten for hanging lights on each side. Each batten has 15 2.4k circuits there are also socapex jacks on 24 of the farthest to reach circuits. Each batten is 18 feet above the floor so an "ideally" placed instrument will have a throw of about 22 feet. There is also a piece of uni-strut running on each side of each catwalk at about 17 feet above the deck. A proscenium style seating configuration will create a stage that is about 40X33... (I'm getting a 40 foot traveler) with 13 feet of wingspace on each side. If we were doing a show and wanted the maximum space with minimal wingspace (no grand) I can stretch that out to about 58'X36'. An arena seating configuration creates a 23'X23' stage area. Thrust is about 29'X34'. And Corner is about 35'X34'. I'm getting two racks of Strand C-21 dimmers and a Strand Classic Palette console. We currently own 16 Source Four 23-50 Zooms and 2 Selecon Pacific Rama PC's. So here's the main lighting part of my shopping list: 60 Source Four Ellipsoidals with 575X lamps and the following lens tubes: 48 @ 36 degree, 24 @ 26 degree, 12 @ 50 degree, 6 @ 19 degree, and 4 @ 70 degree 24 Source Four PAR-EA with 575x lamps 12 Altman 175Q 8" fresnels with 1000W BVT lamps 48 Altman 165Q 6" fresnels with 750 BTN lamps 8 Altman PAR 64's with NSP and MFL lamps 12 Selecon 23-50 zooms specificly for gobos and transparency projection 18 Altman FC1 Cyclights with 1500W FDB lamps and 3 Cell Yokes 4 Inky's 16 Seachanger's for the Source 4's 12 Wybron Nexera Wash lights 2 Martin Mac 700 Profile's 2 Rosco Infinity animation systems with 5 discs each 4 I-cues 4 Right Arms 2 Gam indexable double rotators 2 Gam non-indexable double rotators 4 Elation UV Wash lights Barndoors for everything. 200 sheets of Gel 50 steel gobos 24 Rosco Colorizers 24 Rosco Image Glass 4 drop in Iris 2 City Theatrical Image mulitplexers 4 Strand Non-dim dimmer packs 5 Strand Ethernet/DMX nodes 1 Wybron PS-600 powersupply Lot's of power and DMX cable and other small stuff like side arms, top hats, color extenders etc... -A color laser printer to be able to print color transparencies for the Selecons -Vectorworks and Lightwright -24" HP color plotter printer (I wanted the 42" but there isn't enough space in my office). That's the lighting part of the package. I've also got shop tools, music, fog machines, rigging gear, a scaffold, and a lot of other stuff... this is just the lighting equipment. I'm particularly curious about feedback on: -My balance of Fresnels vs S4' PARS -the heavy lean on 6" fresnels over 8" -the lack of strips... I decided to cut them and go with more fresnels and cyc lights instead -barndoors do I need one for EVERY fresnel or maybe only 75% -going with Nexeras for wash lights but Seachangers for spots.
