Hi,

Any more word on what's happening with the VJ setup? Lucie told me on Wednesday night that POW doesn't have projectors/screens/video-mixers, etc. Someone mentioned to me after that that they do. Do we have any definite word on this?

Cubist, did you have any luck with your friend at Harry the Hirer?

Lucy (my Lucy) is keen to VJ. Did you get onto that other girl Lucie (Claire?)?

check the tech spec sheet at www.princebandroom.com.au - i've only done one show there but when I did that they had 2 video projectors and a few mood type lighting things. that was 18 months ago though.

BTW - their lighting rig is really cool!

Cool, thanks for the tip off.

Unless someone from POW can confirm otherwise, I'm going to assume this tech sheet is correct.

So...

Let's see how cubist goes with getting projectors for us.

I'm working on the Friday of the gig, so I won't have time to go and sort the VJ setup during the day, so unless someone else can do it, we may be better off ditching the VJ thing and using the 4 still slide projectors that POW has.

Anyone got thoughts on this?

personally I'm not overly fussed about visuals - would be a bonus to have for sure but it's not the end of the world if we can't get it set up etc..

OK. I'm gonna call POW and see what the go is. Then I'll make an executive decision (since I was the one that brought up this VJ thing anyway).

If you have any strong feelings about the VJ thing, now is the time to speak up.

i reckon it's gonna be too much lucas.

we have four live acts already so there's going to be a lot of stage changes going on n stuff and having a vj up there is just going to make it all that much harder!

it would be cool to have of course but i think it's just going to add another dimension of difficulty in running the night!

OK it goes like this:

I just spoke to "Gooba" at POW. He's the guy in charge of setting everything up that day. The deal is...

They do have video projectors, but they're in service because they've been playing up and they won't be ready for when we need them.

He also said that he and his assistants have a huge amount on their plate for that day, so even if we could organise all the gear we need they probably won't be able to fit it in to their schedule.

So, looks like we have to ditch the idea.

I still say we utilise their 4 slide projectors though (he said this would be fine). We could make 35mm slides with logos for:

Red Cross
DMC
Agent Mad
Melbourne Beats?

Thoughts/comments?

Lucas: Sounds fine.

Re: using Red Cross logo - no go there, they won't allow it I don't think (check Red Cross info thread)

Thanks for the suggestion Fents, but it looks like POW can't fit it into their schedule. We're gonna have to go with slides or nothing unfortunately.

Roger that.

Maybe we should just go with DMC, AM, MB? Anyone else that should/shouldn't be up in lights?

I guess we could have the beat aid logo instead of the red cross one?

just make sure you have some of Lucie's visual pics in between all the logo's or I will feel like i am at a Hardware event and must immediately go purchase a new Nokia product or see "One Perfect Day". kills me.

I spoke to friend at Harry the Hirer, they'll know on Tuesday if we can have gear or not, depending on their bookings. But I guess that doesn't matter any more.

Can still be arranged if need be.

We have them for our Bassoids party's. They supplied they're own gear - including screens and projectors. They just rocked up when we were setting up the sound rig and did their thing. Took them about an hour or so. They have played at POW anyway. The logistics should be no issues????????????? Thoughts anyone?

This has already been sorted. We already had proper VJ's lined up and even if we had our own gear we don't have approval from POW (see above).

The decision has been made to keep things simple and use 35mm slides instead.

Thanks again for your suggestions/interest, but there's nothing else we can do at this point.

FYI.

The slides are ready. I'll be picking them up before work tomorrow morning.

BRB, I asked if they were mounted and the guy said yes. I asked again if they would be fine to use in a projector for a few hours and he said yes.

Thanks for the tip off.

hey lucas, slightly off topic but would Lucia be interested in some slide mounts for the future? I have a whole bunch of slides from work that i dont need anymore and am loath to throw away because some photographer/visual artist might like the mounts. let me know if she would.

Hey PC. I'll ask her and let you know. I'm pretty sure she'd be keen. Even if she's not, I'd love to take them off your hands for myself. =)
