In-cave training

The rig is up and working in the caves, and the DA team is adapting to the new system very quickly. Today we wrapped up practice shooting on a few lower rows of Cave 12, and then raised the whole rig up 14 feet to the ceiling test the its functionality at the upper limits. The process was slow, and involved a lot of troubleshooting, but ultimately the team was successful in capturing the top row of wall images.

As a plus, we found a great use for one of my favorite rigging accessories, the short-barreled cross (shown below in the Modern Studio Equipment showroom), as a fixed cross brace at the crown of the rig.
