Hi all!

 

I need to rig 12 neon lights in a background scene, the thing is that each 4 lights needs to have the shape of a "3" (a letter M inverted, so at the background will appear: 333. The lenght its about 1m. 

 

I was thinking on C stands with a clamp, but I'm not sure if 12 C stands will be the solution when all the neons needs to be relatively close ones to each others... I'm running out of ideas these days? You have any clue on how I can do it guys? Simple and quick?

How about hanging the lights from monofilament on an overhead grid or truss? Sounds like they are not too heavy if you're putting them on c-stands.

Mount them on a black board and then mount the board on stands.
