Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts lately. They will come as often as we can. Anyways, the below trick is pretty neat.
I was juicing a feature in Antioch, IL a few weeks ago. The gaffer, Trevor Crist, told me to rig PAR46′s to a pillar that had a diameter of 7″ or so. He ended up teaching me a really neat little trick that day about how you can manipulate rigging for small fixtures. Low and behold, I used 2 large zip ties to go around the pillar and the yoke of the fixture. Like so(sorry about the iPhone quality, I know it’s shitty):
The weight of the fixture is what held them in place. A really neat trick that can keep “clunky” chain vice grips out of the image as in this case, the camera saw the PARs in the BG.
