  1. Charity shops/ bigger ex retail sheds used by charities as shops have tons of “brown furniture” and nick-nacs as pretty much nobody under 70 values them. My Mum had several tea sets that came out for special events but everyone I know uses mugs. (Even if Elvis appeared) Buying excess stock is probably cheaper than protecting the correct number of cups. Just suck up a few breakages. Bear in mind that the stage will be 20 feet away from the front row (ish)
  2. I am more video than audio, and imagine each mic as a camera. Or think of it as recording an orchestra /band multi mic/track. As said, you could simply way Mic 1 / 2 /3. Recording 1/ 2/3 and Take 1/2/3. Mic being the placement, Recording being the sound (music or speech) and Take being the first, second or third attempt.
  3. When people say “IEM” they tend to think wireless. There are various home brewed ways to power cheap wired headphones to reduce costs. Not long ago, I bought a cheap Amazon IEM wireless to distribute audio between a couple of rooms. It works, but untried in anger and probably not too rugged. If you can access a CRT video monitor and camera (avoid hdmi) you could have a conductor or video countdown visible to the choir. Digital cctv tend to have delays. You need to ensure that the music and video are in sync at delivery
  4. Does the projected image have to be seen while the rig is in motion? What about a pantograph? I admit that the ones I used are manual, but motorised ones are available,
  5. Most LED floods give flicker on camera, Halogen might be preferable (if available) Do you have a van/scaff tower/ A Frame ladder? getting height is hard without a budget. We used to use Gas Genies a long time ago.
  6. Or some M10 studding cut into over length bits, stick in a vice and apply heat to bend into an L shape? Delux version gets some heat shrink on the handle part.
  7. You could use lengths of studding and right angle dexion to make a cage to support the projector? It’s not light, so the cage would need to be sturdy. I have done stuff like this in the past. It depends on your competence to build it safe enough to be over people’s heads. I’d use two G clamps to hold it hanging from the bar, along with two safety chains/bonds. That assumes you can adjust the height of the bar or zoom.
  8. I think I have lost it now, but my Dad had a small brass coloured screwdriver with a screw cap. Like a set of Russian Dolls, it contained a series of smaller screwdrivers (not bits) each of which fitted inside one another and also fitted onto the driver end of the next side up. In theory you could extend using all of them but in reality you’d use a couple to make the driver manageable. They probably date from the fifties and I am sure that they are “somewhere” at home
  9. I always called it a dummy load. The light can be anywhere. Often under the stage or behind something to hide any light.
  10. I am pretty sure that the camera only has one BNC? That will be a composite signal, SDI would be sent to the CCU or recorder.

They aren’t that good for tiny objects, years ago I had some fingerless ones but then you get nipped fingertips. I can only find Large on Amazon.
  12. https://www.flyingtech.co.uk/fpv-camera-gimbals/mini-digital-video-recorder-dvr-fpv-racing-drones https://www.immersionrc.com/fpv-products/powerplay/ I looked into these a year or so back, as someone wanted to “convert” an old cam corder to a usable format so they could edit footage shot on the vintage camera. I got onto the second one because people who use a truly dreadful audio cassette based kids toy camera for grainy art videos have used them. The camera was a PXL that is sought after, though Lord knows why!

It has a euro 2 pin plug. Not a 110 USA type plug. The bumph says 110v . I could remove the moulded plug and fit a USA one, running a 110 transformer, but suspect that it’s actually 220v How safe (for the device) is it to try 220v? I don’t want to blow up any internal boards. TIA
  14. Thanks for the comments. It is a piece of performance art, so we can’t use triggered sfx. I don’t have to make it, I am just tying to help someone remotely.
