Scope of Work:
The filming of Rob Marshall's Memoirs of a Geisha involved recreating a geisha district set in Kyoto, Japan on a southern California horse ranch. In order to provide accurate lighting a cloth diffuser, or "silk" had to be strewn across the entire 2.5 acre set. To achieve this record feat SGPS ShowRig provided two massive truss structures on either end of the replica town to support this silent grid.
800 Sections of 20.5" Plus Style Box Truss
380 20.5" Corner Blocks
250 20.5" Node Blocks
Over 1 Million lbs of Water Ballast
108,000 Square Feet of Silent Full Grid
