I'm lighting a pretty small apartment next week, however the ceilings are very high and we are considering rigging as much as we can via a couple of polecats/mathpoles.
I've never used this system for this type of rigging and am a bit concerned about the weight limits that it can take, without supplementary support from a couple of stands. Extended about ten feet, how much do you reckon they could safely hold? A 4 x 4' kino bank? A couple of Arri 650's with sofboxes? A couple of dedopars with chimera lanterns?
Are there any other low cost alternatives for ceiling rigging (That dont involve drilling/bolting/screwing things into walls) that I should take into consideration?
