Gauze Hire Suffolk - if a gauze is what's needed
Posted 29 January 2012 - 09:29 PM
I have a design for a set here for an am-dram production around Easter - the set is the interior of a railway station waiting room, with the platform upstage (unseen-ish). The designer has asked for a gauze upstage before the cyc/upstage tabs as he wants the continuation into the unseen - 'haze' is the brief - but I'm not sure this will give the effect he's looking for - once it's lit I'm worried it'll just look like a cyc?
I'd be interested in what anyone thinks a about that - and then unless anyone has any better suggestions I'd be looking for the hire of an appropriate gauze in 40'x20' minimum - ideally 44'x22' near Ipswich / Norwich.

It might have a similar effect in front of a lit painted cloth.

Have you tried scenic projects?

If you've just got a set of blacks in they my first though was 'multiple gauzes' ie a set of gauzes in different colours giving you a fade-out effect.

I haven't tried Scenic Projects yet but they were on our list. Viking are a regular supplier of ours - I have a paper catalogue of theirs so I'll check in there - it's possible Ian does have some.

It turned out Scenic Projects had a nice 'cloud painted' grey gauze that would have been perfect:
But the group didn't follow the usual order of getting the licence before they start work on the play, so despite being designed, costed, cast and having started rehearsals, they couldn't get the rights (as apparently there's a pro show going out next year).
