Hey yall... We are doing fame in a few months and I am operating and desiging lighting aswell as co-designing the static fixtures. our set is very industrial, built mainly from scaffolding and features garage doors etc. however costumes are bright in the traditional fame colours. we decided to use moving lights for special effect lighting during hte dance and song numbers, however Im not sure if a studio beam or studio spot would be more appropriate. On one hand you have the wider beam good for bright colours and defined beams, and the other the smaller beam good for pinpointing out special things more so than just random "rock style" lighting. I want to do a bit of both however, I am not sure if the studio spot or studio beam would suit the show better, what is everyone's thoughts? I am also looking at using our venue's strand 500 console to operate the movers as oppose to getting a seperate desk. Just wanted to hear from people who have used a strand to drive a moving light and if it was relativly easy?? do they have the pallettes and whatever like hogs, and buttons and wheeles to just change like the gobo or whatever? thanks!
