Christopher Law from SpringHill Camps brings us this stage design that fit in great with the Na’vi people on Pandora. (Avatar reference, anyone?)
They set design included a large tree constructed on stage built from a wooden and tubing frame wrapped with fabrics. They were able to get approximately 12 full rolls of fabric from an RV interiors supplier for $100 the previous fall. All of the fabrics came pretreated with fire retardant too.
A 30′ wide 16×3 (4267×800 analog) projection scrim was designed internally and sewn by Rose Brand. Framing was custom built from 3/4″ conduit. 3 projectors were used, driven by an iMac with a TH2G running ProPresenter 4. Side screens were separately driven by an iMac in 4:3 configuration. Both iMacs were using synced libraries and motion backgrounds.
Inside the “tree” they built in a 4×5 matrix of BR30 lamps all independently controlled via dimmer packs. This was used for simple patterns and symbols and driven by the Vista i3.
Additionally a 3/4″ OSB floor was installed on top of the installed stage and routed out to allow 2 circuit rope lighting to be installed as multiple branch circuits.
Additional lighting included:
- 2x L & R Upstage double hung truss on end
- 5x Martin MX4 Scanners
- 60x S4 Pars
- 26x S4 Ellipsoidal’s
- 8x Generic 10mm PAR64 LED’s
- 3x 4-way pin spot bars
- 4x Times Square 701 strips (blinders)
- Various Altman 360Q’s & Fresnel’s
- 4x T12 4′ black light fixtures
