In the third part of our continuing series of videos looking at the terminology and techniques used in rigging best practices, Siobhan Colleen explains the often-misunderstood terms and symbols relating to Arena Chalk Markings.
As Siobhan demonstrates, these markings are of crucial importance when establishing the location of each rig point and determining the type of motor required. They also show how the point needs to be built.
So, if you are unclear about the differences between Stingers, Deck Chains, and Deadhangs, be sure to watch the latest instalment in A4I’s guide to safe and efficient rigging.
