    Yeah, you can always stack up multiple lower powered lights to create a multi-source source that is then as bright as a bigger light, just always a pain to do so and has various drawbacks. Still, an option.

    Black shelves, turquoise air mattress on top for, uh, putting equipment on so the equipment is comfortable. Sound blankets, yeah, that's definitely what those are for, along with the sound pillows. ;-)

    I get that. I worked for over a decade with crews that size. It is somewhat arbitrary what to call someone who is doing multiple types of jobs on a small crew. But it is important once you stretch out to bigger jobs to know who to go out to...a "professional" (i.e. one who works on larger shows, probably union) grip is going to have more useful information when it comes to flying rags than a gaffer.

    Incidentally I showed the pics you just posted to my key grip and he said the setup looked fine, although "tying off to 20lb shotbags doesn't help that much" i.e. if there is a serious gust, that won't be enough to prevent a blowover. I see them tying off to carts loaded with sandbags in those situations.

    For storing such a sensitive equipment, NASA developed foam based pressure absorbing material. Try some of Tempur toppers and see if equipment likes it ;o).

    Guess I'm old fashion.

    My stuff generally rides in Pelican/Storm cases, or milk crates.

    Yeah, the genius of pick and pluck is that you can create a topography that perfectly matches your body. My wife and I have his and hers Pelican 0550s in our room. I do have to get into a bit of a fetal position, though.

    I'm not a big fan of milk crates, though. Sleeping in one feels like I'm in a crib.
