My Thoughts About Dropbox Paper

Posted on November 18th, 2018

Great tool for creating proposals and reports; for managing and delegation of tasks and projects; and for collaboration and ideation with live editing by multiple users both inline and with comments. It’s simple, clean, and intuitive. I love the assignable tasks. The mobile apps are good.

I wish it had a computer app instead of simply web app. I wish the filing structure was better. I wish there was a handwriting/drawing feature for note-taking, diagramming, and annotating. I wish to-dos integrated with Siri/Reminders.

Visqueen Truss Wraps

Posted on July 25th, 2013

I've been asked this question a few times over the past few months so I thought I'd turn my reply into a blog post.

Hey Eric, I'm looking to buy some soft good or vinyl wraps for 12" box trussing. I wanted to check with you to see if you have a company you would go with for something like this. Let me know if you do, I'd like to order them as soon as possible. If you don't know of anything, no big deal, I'll go with a company I found online.

I'm honestly a fan of Visqueen. Cut into 3' wide strips, wrap around 3 sides that the audience can see - adhering with Gaff tape. A light from inside will glow the Visqueen and highlight the truss for a really great looking texture.

Another thought to consider is pulling fabric through the inside of truss. Again, position your truss warmer inside the truss as well - the fabric will take color and play with the folds for beautiful saturation while the truss will be highlighted in silhouette to for additional texture and form.

Below are photos showing both ideas in use.
