Welcome to episode. Oh man. We’re at 1 51, maybe, uh, sorry. Uh, we I’ve I’ve recorded like nine back-to-back. So my apologies, but we are, uh, today we’re gonna talk about, uh, Mod Scenes and stage backdrops and towers specifically scenic towers. So, um, as you probably know, if you’ve listened to any of our other podcasts, my name is Steven. I’m the leader of mods teens. I also do a lot of the design work and a lot of the sales work. Uh, I really love great, cool things for cool people like you. And I would love to create something cool for you. Uh, whether that be using our standard products or a custom product, um, reach out to me, let me know how I can help you best. And, uh, we will, uh, show you why we’re the best, the highest rated stage design company in the country.
And, uh, yeah, so let’s jump into the podcast. We’re talking today about, uh, stage backdrops and, uh, 3d tower. So self-supporting towers, um, being the one to talk about a new piece of hardware, that’s super helpful in, uh, crane towers. So, uh, so as you probably know, uh, we make modular stage backdrops design pieces. So these pieces can also be built into a modular towers as well. So seating towers or, uh, or columns, uh, uh, so to give you an idea, uh, these, uh, are, are height on building them freestanding as 12 feet. So you can build them up to 12 feet freestanding without, uh, additional support. Uh, you can, uh, use our ground support, uh, stands with basis and go up to 16 feet on most designs. Um, or you can go even taller if you use a center core of trust. So if you use like a trust upright, that’s really well sandbagged, you could flip one of our tower bases upside down, bolt directly to the end of your trust and build down from there.
So a super cool, a cool thing there. Um, so we have two different versions. We have a square tower and we have a, uh, triangle or tower. So our square towers, obviously four-sided, um, our Trango tower is three-sided obviously I know that’s like that’s simple doc, right? Sorry. Um, but the cool thing about that is the three-sided tower shows a little bit more dimension. The four-sided tower is a little bit more traditional and you can kind of diamond them and still get a really cool dimensional look to, um, the three-sided tower obviously cuts down on the amount of panels needed. So by doing that, um, it also saves on your overall cost for your purchase or rental price. If you do try and go tower, uh, are both our square and triangle towers have, are, uh, have tower caps. So you can put a tap a cap at the top of the tower.
And what this allows is it allows you to shoot all the extra light. They are shooting in the ceiling and shoot it back down. So it’ll bounce back down off that top panel and fill up the interior of your, um, area really well, the interior, the light of your area really well. Um, so, uh, the actual triangle triangle top is a new product. It actually launched this week. So, uh, you can get those on our firstname.lastname@example.org, uh, in the triangle. We did the triangle hardware there too. Um, so the triangle hardware currently is only available. Uh, well actually, you know, it’s available in the proceeds in the, uh, Mazi, so it gets the triangle hardware. It’s awesome. Uh, uh, so yeah, so, um, uh, what else can I tell you? Um, so with these towers, um, you can obviously work in custom branding, so you can do, uh, custom logos. You can do, um, you can do custom printing. You can, uh, you can create a lot of really cool things with, um, with these towers. Uh, another thing you can do is on the back of the towers, like on one side of the towers, you can do a solid panel, uh, and this gives you, uh, more area for light to bounce off of it. Makes it a little bit more, uh, uh, more how you say, uh, more
Contrast. So you’ll get more contrast between the front front design panels and the back solid panels.
Uh, excuse me. Good. This
Is why you don’t record podcasts at six in the morning. Uh, um, so in addition to, uh, those solid panels, we have a frosted panel that you can put on the front, either behind her, in front of the, uh, in front of the, a little bit, a little bit ago, or they call it the design pale, so you can get, uh, so, so you can make it where you don’t see through the panel, uh, which has beneficial if you were trying to hide things behind at the towers. Um, so yeah,
So there’s quite a few options on creating some cool stuff with those towers. Um, you can also, uh, another thing that I
Really like, I think that’s a great idea is doing towers that are, have that frosted backer, but they also have a, uh, have that frosted backup, but they also have a, um, a design pattern and kind of, and doing on like a four-sided tower and doing two sides that are, uh, designed one like your first design and on the other side, have two other designs. Uh, so that essentially what you
Do is you create two stage designs with one tower and all you have to do is rotate. Uh, all you have to do is rotate the tower to be able to, uh, create
Your next, uh, to create your next, uh, your next
Stage design. So this is a really beneficial if you’re in a space where you’re like, uh, over and over again, you’re doing,
And over again, you’re doing a stage design, but you want it to be different, but, uh, you don’t have time to make a full stage change. You can just go through and rotate your towers, leave the internal lighting just as it is, rotate your towers
And have a new look. So one of the things I really love
To do with the towers is to create multiple levels. So, uh, with a lot of stage designs, we’ll kind of stagger the tower. So say in the center, we’ll have two 10 foot towers, uh, then we’ll have outside of that on the off state judges will have two eight foot towers and then two, six foot, and then two, four floods. And this staggered looks, looks really great. It’s a great visual
For creating a great stage backdrops.
Another great option to do with towers is actually hanging the towers. So physically hang the towers, kind of like you would a stage backdrops, uh, from a trust or something like that. You can hang those at different Heights and then pair that on the floor with some that are actually ground supported. Um, so like from, for example, we talked about doing, you know, 10 foot towers in the center and working our way out well from the top, you can answer it to the opposite. So at the center start with a four foot tower and work your way out and down to 10 foot. Um, so that gives a really cool, uh, kind of second dimension to, uh, uh, to, to your stage design. And I think it looks really great. Um, yeah. So, uh, another thing you can do is, uh, so say you want to build like an entryway, uh, using our square towers and, uh, our triangle towers, you can do that.
Um, you just use a, uh, V notched, um, a V notched, a solid panel at the top of your, uh, square towers and then the triangular tower you’ll just lift in and sat right in top. Um, so that makes like an entryway and you could put custom branding on it. Uh, so yeah, it’s a cool little, uh, little effect. Um, so yeah, so, um, and so I hope, I hope this has been helpful. Another thing, uh, well, we’ll say that for another podcast. Um, let me know if there’s any way we can serve you. Um, obviously our triangles and our square towers are really cool products that that can create a cool visual, but regardless if you need help with, uh, scenic or stage design products, stage backdrops, or DMX toys, um, pixel noise, uh kinetochores, whatever you want to call them, um, we’d be happy to help you. So, uh, I’d love for you to reach out to us. You can reach out to us at modscenes.com or you can call us on the phone at (530) 723-6421. Uh, and I’m looking forward to chatting with you about your next stage design or your next stage backdrops and how we can help you best thanks again for tuning into the Nazis podcast. And we will catch you on the next.
