I agree with commenters who suggest you should think ‘safety’ almost to the point of extremism.Queries:
- What size & type of follow spot; a Source 4 with an iris, a Strong Super Trouper, something in between from Robert Julliat (Sp?)?
- How big, how heavy?? Operated by an 80 pound child or a 300+ pound gorilla???
_ How high is your stage????
_ In a comparatively protected area or next to a lake or ocean?????
- Toe / kick boards on all four sides.
- Drainage provided for rain, sleet, or snow.
- Rubber matting, or similar, for good traction when wet.
- Ash bucket for smokers.
- Garbage can for flamable trash.
- Liquid tight bucket for when 'nature calls'.
- An appropriate height stool for comfort while operating on long days / nights.
- Lighting at floor level for operation post sunset.
- Safety harness and suitable fall arrest lanyard.
- Rated tie off points, not a handrail.
A few thoughts to get you started.
Last week, Bill was talking about their hydraulic stage, over 120 pistons and 5,000 feet of high pressure hoses.With their hydraulic beast, 20 years ahead of it's time.
One of my favorite clients works with Terry.
I suspect you could hook him up with Bill Hayley And The Comets as well.
