    Hi Everyone,

    My director has asked me to think about ways to make it look like the actors are in a revolving restaurant (i guess that would mean like giving the feeling that we are moving) during one of the scenes of our musical this year. (Wedding Singer) I've thought of using rotating gobos on the cyc, but can't really figure out how to effectively do it... Any ideas or has anyone ever done this? Thanks in advance.

    If you have the money, GAM FilmFX unit with cloud reel in it - focus on one side of the clouds so it looks like they're moving across the sky.

    That looks like a great product, hopefully one of our local rental places will have it (or something similar) for a cheap price. Thanks!!

    Video projection could solve your problem too.

    Post this question over in Scenery and let Van have a shot at it. I've built small scrolling drops in the past, never on a large scale. But I'm sure it can be done and if anyone around here knows how it's the V-man.
