Irish rigging hire company Made For Stage supplied a dynamic rigging package for lighting designer Joe Betts on the recent Walking on Cars tour, as well as providing the lighting package, through an affiliate company.

Using a mother grid and inverted motors four finger trusses were flown and were able to move up and down, as well as pivoting left and right at the down stage ends. This allowed the rig to change shape multiple times creating a fresh visual with each movement.

Joe said: “The biggest challenge we faced was touring something this large into mid-size venues, which are not really designed for this scale of production.”

Made For stage rose to the challenge, using ground supported rigs as necessary, to ensure a continuity of production value.

Joe again: “In the end we brought in a production on a scale never seen before in most of these venues.”

Made For Stage is Ireland's only specialist rigging hire company, focusing on trussing and motor hire for the entertainment industry.
