I was a secondary rigger for my theatre's last show, and somehow I was supposed to run rail and keep track of the crew and check the set after each scene change. But that's all beside the point. We were having a very rushed scene change during a tech rehearsal, and as I was flying out a drop, the set crew started pushing a set peice forward too early. Of course, right at that moment, my foot gets caught in my clear com cable and I look down literally for 2 seconds to fix it before a trip (I never ever ever look away from what I'm doing). And then I hear RIIIIP. The set went right through the drop. If I had been looking at what I was doing, I could have seen what was about to happen and stopped moving the drop before the set actually hit it. Anyway, the director was really mad and yelled across the entire theatre for the other rigger to take me off rail. Wow, how humiliating. Now I feel really really stupid, and the director is STILL realy really pissed at me. Does anyone else have some stories of bad or just plain stupid rigging mistakes?
