Welcome to my teeth podcast, this is stephen and I’m thrilled to be chatting with you today about backdrops stage backdrops today, I’m going to talk a little bit specifically about hard backdrop, so require physical building on site, I’ll even share a great story of one of one of my first time, working with a hard set. Another word todid backdrops, oh here we go hard backdrop so good together. These are materials built together to be a self-standing, singular unit which is great. If you’re looking for a very specific trying to make something very, very custom, something that has an exact branding to match what you’re doing. But there a lot of challenges with you. You’re, going to be looking at a large labor force to assemble it and load it in your also going to look at it suspended trucking cost. Many many hearts can take Stage Backdrops outboards a 53-foot truck transport.
So obviously, that’s a lot of space, so example for for an event, so typically I’m going to have some sort of either pipe and drape in the back is locally or a tall ship with with the weather going to have an upstage trust loan for back lighting purposes or screen door or the like. In from those places, you can usually I’m on team drop. So what are the approaching product or are either works really well hanging from pipe and drape or trust, or even your wall tracks whenever you’re looking at probably shipping a total of shipping, a six boxes total of those six boxes, two of them are small and one of them smaller boxes. So you got five boxes:full house worth of material 26in by 26in by 35 and 6:40, probably a 24-foot truck 26-foot truck with some items. Start it’s going to require extra tools to assemble. It run hard set hard stage. Stage Backdrops is going to need to have experienced carpenter who can go through and make adjustments as needed, who can fix anything damaged in shipping?
I want to hear things about our products to sensation, ship in the heavy-duty, cardboard boxes and wrote aces those really not an issue for us when it comes to buy shipping almost 9.9% of time they arrive in good shape. So, let’s, let’s, let’s talk about a few as if you’ve ever read about a section of our website, you probably seen kind of how I got into doing stage backdrops how I got into the stage backdrop:lifestyle lifestyle, so one of my early jobs was really great, really great guy and we experienced a really crazy mind you. It was a show we subcontracted for and I think was the first and last time we ever subcontractor for this client to set up video and audio and lighting in this room, hearts that came in a 53-foot truck so large, large wooden panels, with with a full paint facades, trim and seeing a really nice work and engraving work on it, and some really great stuff finished colonial work for a financial client. They wanted a really like prestigious look, so that’s it was screen, surround verticals had lower sections, all of which were obviously but also had to be finished. So the company forgot to send half the set.
They sent. Two halves of two different sets, so I just was in the miami area. We hired a if we didn’t the company doing this higher day, hired at a local carpenter like a house, carpenter handyman and he came out day of the day before show and rebuilt the pretty much the entire thing called, but they also forgot to send set jacks or sand bags. So they’re, 16, 16, foot, vertical parts at walls that had to be angry and everything was falling from genies and I got lighting was one from genies and soft and trust hours. So it wasn’t a safe thing to put a large windsail, essentially onto a genie tower, especially with delsym set drops out of some spare two by fours and blair. Okay, now we need some weight, so they didn’t send wait. So he ended up finding road cases that were backstage the sandbag cases for and screw directly through the two-by-four into the cable caddy cadillac style. Quesadilla. Have you have a case, so we held up to the stage backdrop with a with a giant case full of sand bag with the decking screws into the case and I have been with, for 5 cases are at the at the end. So that’s why you should that’s why you should rent or buy mods that you don’t have some crazy guy putting screw holes. So again, thanks for joining the mods thanks for enjoying and listening to our marketing podcast still use those. It’s it’s a lot less now, but it’s it’s very inefficient system.
