Winter Dome Show
« on: December 22, 2010, 06:19:22 pm »

Hi all,
I could use some help from the pros here.I am providing sound and lighting for this event]http://www.snow-sculpting.com/snowfe...rtTickets.html
The sound is already covered,i was wondering what i could do with the lighting.Here is a list of what i have for lighting.
2- 10ft sections of Global 16" Box truss
2-ST-157 crank stands
2- 10ft sections of the cheaper truss
2- trees that support 8 pars each
1- Lemaitre Radiance hazer
16- Par 38s with 100 watt 10 degree spots (8 of the par 38s can handle 300 watt)
2- Chauvet DMX-4 dimmer relay packs
10-of these LED par 64s http://www.microhpro.com/ledp64ksd2.html
6-Chauvet color strips
2-Chauvet color palettes
1- Tri Phase
8-Martin SCX 500s
BlueLite controller with a physical board
This event is 3 days at the end of January in a Dome in a field.
Would the lighting i have be sufficient for this or not? I would be probably willing to drop a couple thousand $ more.I need suggestions on placement.and what if any more lighting to be added.
Thanks for any help.
Greg

unfortunately the event link doesn't work

what you can do with the lighting will really depend on what kind of show it is...

corporate? live music? video? theater? etc

it'll also depend on stage size and what you can rig off of

you've *probably* got enough lights for the job, depending on what needs to be lit of course

more information is required

Hi James,
Thanks for your reply.I am not sure of the size of the stage yet,but,the dome is i think 70ft,they said it hold around 500.
Maybe this link will work,http://www.snow-sculpting.com/SarniaEvent.html
The 2 headliners are Emm Gryner http://www.emmgryner.com/
and Elliot Brood, http://www.elliottbrood.ca/
And there will also be 7 local bands.
Emm Gryner i have heard before but, Elliot Brood i have not.I watched some of their vids on youtube,and it don't look like they need a lot of flash or movement for their shows.
Thanks again James,
Greg.

I just checked to see if the snow sculpting link would work as well,and it don't
Maybe copy and paste would work.The links work for Emm Gryner and Elliot Brood.

what i'd try to do would be this:

downstage truss:

10 LED pars
4 575w Lekos (if you've got em) on a 4 channel dimmer

upstage truss:
8 scx 500

on floor stands:
16 par 38s in groups of 4 on another 4 channel dimmer

you could put the LED strips on the floor or drum riser or around the room to add some other lighting as well

should be enough for a relatively small stage, say in the 20-30' wide area

i don't see them putting anything bigger in the igloo dome, im pretty sure i've been there before and it's not that big

Thanks James,
I like your suggestion,and you are right,it cant be that big,they said it holds 500 people,well,its a 70ft circle,you cant have to big of a stage in that if you want to cram a bunch of people in it.

Here is one for you,Home depot is building the stage Rolling Eyes They like to cut everyone's grass i guess.
Again,thanks for your help.

Best way to design lighting is to start with the thing/area to be lit, and decide what's the perfect way to light it.  Then eliminate stuff based on budget, time, electrical capacity, etc.

I did a show last summer Where HD built the stage. They were asked to be a sponsor of the event and this was the result. They built the stage like they would build a pier and beam house. It was all 3/4 and 2x6's.

I don't know what they did after the show. It might still be there! Laughing

I cant believe it,Home Depot is building 8 4x4ft sections,we are talking a whole 8x16 ft stage with 9 bands Rolling Eyes I hope they plan on using one drum kit.This looks like i am not going to have a good night.You would think that with the amount of $ they are spending on sound,lights,projection,7 local band and 2 headliners,they would get a bigger and better stage.
