So I have a couple of questions.
I got the opportunity to do a couple of shows in my high school, and it was the only thing that I have ever resonated with. It was fun, I felt like I was at home, and I took very well to the kind of work we were doing. I decided that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life, and I have some questions about how to go about doing that. I mostly want to work with lighting, hopefully design but I love just working with lights.
1. What degree would teach me the most about lighting? I am currently leaning towards a Theatre Arts degree at Portland State University, as they have some options for technical theatre.
2. I am planning to get my prerequisites out of the way at a Community College, and then transfer over to PSU. Is this a good idea? or should I do all four years at PSU?
3. Would a theatre arts degree help me do lighting design for touring bands and such?
Any advice is good. Thanks in advance.
