    BEST moving head for around/under $1,000??

    I think I have narrowed my choices down to: Blizzard 90 Chauvet Q-Spot 260 Intimidator Spot 350 Basically, I have to decide if the extra brightness of the Blizzard 90 is worth ~$400 because the other specs look almost identical except for the additional 2nd static gobo wheel (do I need that?)...

    BEST moving head for around/under $1,000??

    Also, it says it only have 5 colors and 7 gobos. Is that a big deal? Other comparables have 7-8 colors, and 2 gobo wheels.

    BEST moving head for around/under $1,000??

    Yes, yes, they are ADJ. I don't know why my mind wandered... Anyways, does anyone here deal the Torrent? I've personally never heard of it. Where can I order a pair for the best deal with quick shipping?

    BEST moving head for around/under $1,000??

    I have no problem going to $1,500 if it's going to get me a much better, brighter fixture. Does that pricepoint change things? I need it to be AT LEAST as bright as an MSD250 comparatively speaking because those are the fixtures I have now. I'm looking to upgrade, especially for a prism and...

    BEST moving head for around/under $1,000??

    I'm looking to purchase 2-4 moving heads to upgrade and complement what I have. I currently have 12 Chauvet AccuScans and 12 Chauvet AccuSpot 250 IIs. The lights have been great for what we use and are workhorses, but I'm also looking to upgrade. My criteria are: Brightness Prism Price...

    Saturday Lighting Gig

    Obviously it looks good, but I had a question: the lights just look really low to me to have a major impact. I know you went as high as the ceiling let you, but how far off the ground are the lights? After you come down from the ceiling, then down from the width of the truss, then down from...

    Just a few pics from a brand NEW Homecoming Set

    We just used weights/barbels on the ground and used fishing line to tie through the gommet on the spandex to the weight on the ground. Worked perfectly!

    Just a few pics from a brand NEW Homecoming Set

    Just wanted to show a couple pics from a new setup we launched at a Homecoming this past weekend. This was at just 1 of 7 Homecomings we had on Saturday night, but I thought the setup looked pretty cool: 40' Overhead Trussing 4 10' Truss Columns 4 8' White Columns 8 Moving Heads Tons of LEDs 6...

    The MOST IMPORTANT event of my life - MY WEDDING - check it out =)

    Haha for the record, my company provided everything seen and listen in the video, including the LED bars. The only thing we didn't provide were the chocolate fountains =) So, the DJ wasn't necessarily paid well because he was one of my DJ's and I put in just as much sweat as my other guys...

    uplighting packages...whats your flavor?

    We charge a flat rate of $500 for static color uplighting using LED parcans and we just bring "enough" to light the room properly. It usually ends up being around 16-24 lighting fixtures.

    The MOST IMPORTANT event of my life - MY WEDDING - check it out =)

    Hey all, Well, I got married this past Saturday to the love of my life! As you can imagine, we went pretty all-out with the lighting and the decor. We also had a few special surprises. We filmed a special entrance video that played on 4 50" plasma screens before our introduction, and also...

    Looking to BUY crank stands for box truss

    Hi gang, I'd like to buy 2 more crank stands for my global box truss. I'd prefer the stand to have a flat footprint and not a tripod-style footprint. The stand must be able to crank AT LEAST 14', preferably 16' or so. I liked both of these: Applied XL-16 Lift Global ST-157 I notice...

    "DANCING ON A CLOUD" effect at a Wedding...MY WEDDING - help

    Hey thanks Bill. I just called a local distributor myself who said dry ice is $1.60 per pound, so that made me feel much more comfortable! How much should it cost to rent the machine? I haven't heard back from 4Wall with a price yet, but also know another lighting company that has a low...

    "DANCING ON A CLOUD" effect at a Wedding...MY WEDDING - help

    Ok thanks for all the input! I contacted 4Wall to see how much it would be to rent. I called one company local that told me it would cost like $250 just for the dry ice, which I thought was absurd. If I can get dry ice to last for a 4-minute song for $20, then I think it's definitely worth...

    PLEASE HELP - Short Throw Projector needed!

    Hey, I'm looking at incorporating some unique video elements in some new set designs. To do this, I need a video projector that's relatively bright (bright enough to be clear in a somewhat dim ballroom or gym, but by no means rock concert quality). The main thing is I would like a...

    Lights or no lights?

    We'll never do an evening party without some sort of lighitng. The only time we don't provide any lighting is for a daytime party with lots of windows in the room. Go check out some local high-end hotels, clubs, sporting events, and concerts and see how they use lighting. Lighting is...

    Prom bookings are starting to come in......

    I'm not sure if our market is different or the way we sell to clients is different. We probably have about 10 Proms booked already, another 5 Pending, and will probably book another 5-10 before Spring Break. We decided to raise our prices quite a bit and see what happens, because we were...
