Under the wire today in straight man world…. Boxing at work. Being too entertained by the levels of testosterone.
There is good news.
Off to the National Theatre for two weeks to participate in their Young Studio to create a scratch performance in the Shed. How exciting.
Long stressful day but we have made progress. Also got asked to work on a rather exciting project which I’m really looking forward to!
After my recent work on Beauty and The Beast, I’m once again assisting on an altogether more intriguing project…. a concert, described to me as “Rock band + Orchestra”
First meeting tomorrow! This will be quite a new experience for me…i’ve not really done concert lighting before.
Tech Week. Day One.
Dry tech today just dealing with truck moves and tidying up LX over the top. We’ve moved the swapped unreliable VL units to the pit! For some extra support in some of the effects. Things are starting to look good!
Now that the VLs have settled down we are starting to have issues with colour mixing on some of the Mac 700s we’re just hoping it won’t be a case of MacDeath!
Wet tech starts tomorrow. Expect blood.
Hello Tech Week.
Yup it has arrived, we had the lighting session today…it’s length was doubled by the complexity of the set (three large trucks that have to be moved into a rather wide range of positions) however after a couple to palette tidy ups I’m confident that we can make the show work! I’m getting quite snappy on the EOS now.
All that is needed now is to resolve the never ending issues with the VL3000Q’s…we’ve already managed to swap out 3 units and they only arrived on Friday!
So heres to a tech week devoted to never-ending truck moves and naughty naughty VLs!
See you on the other side!
