for Venue Managers:
be put off by the amount of equipment we bring to
gigs! We're well organised and very efficient, as
all previous venues and promoters we've dealt with
can testify to. See our Events.
you have projector/s) installed
then all we need is:
Room for our own tables (about 3 metres
is good, but we can squeeze into 2 metres or less
if need be)
power point. None of our equipment draws much
power, compared to the audio & lighting people.
Half of this stuff can run on battery, or is USB-powered.
AV or sVideo connection to hook into projector.
Let us know which, and if we need to bring any of
our own cabling or adaptors (eg BNC).
like to be well prepared, and really appreciate
being able to bump in and set up VERY early. We
don't charge for set-up time as we think it's essential
to have everything working well before the event
commences so that we can troubleshoot any technical
issues that may arise.
you do NOT have projector/s installed,
we can hire them to you, from 2,000 - 12,000
lumens. See services.
we are NOT riggers however, we will need to
place the projector/s on a table or similar,
you have your own qualified lighting rigger.
can also bring lightweight screens. They're actually
white seamless tarpaulins called "Genesis Tarps"
that can even be hung from temporary non-wall-damaging
hooks if required, as we've done in heritage-listed
venues. They're thin enough to back-project onto,
so you can play with multiple-projection in interesting
way such as we did at the Fly by Night Club for
a Loungerama event.
REALLY appreciate being able to get a line-in from
the audio desk, as we like to record
the event to mini-DV tape for the purposes of
quality control (not to use for anything public).
We've found that musicians and venues often appreciate
getting a DVD copy of this afterwards, as a record
of the live event. If you're not comfortable with
this, let us know and we won't record the audio,
just our own visuals performance.
we only record the VJ-desk-out (ie, what's being
projected), but if you want stage footage, we also
have pro video
equipment and can do that - although generally
we're far more interested in VJing than filming
what's going on onstage :)
