Post The Dead Giantess
I am currently producing ITW and I am trying to descide the best way to "kill" the Giant. The script calls for the Giantess head to fall into view. How has this been accomplished in other shows?

In my production the group looked offstage and we heard a crash. It worked well enough. :)

Thanks. I've considered that, but I was trying to come up with something that would be a little more dramatic. Unfortunatly we don't have the ability (both cost and room) to make a head fall.

I did see a youtube video with a hand that fell....

I once saw a very low budget production where the had just a cutout of her hand falling into view.

We did a shadow of her head against the scrim all lit up changing from night to day.

I've also seen her foot fall on stage.
