The bridge was my only real flown drop. It was made in sections in the Performance Productions shop.
The groundrow hid the projectors, and some cyc lights that gave Dan Mooney another simple element to play with for generating different looks.
Here Dan lights the the dancers, the projection screen, banners, groundrow and cyc to great advantage.
