Over the past few months, I have had some pretty awful experiences with two directors at my school (one theater and one dance choreographer/director). They're requests were essentially beyond not only my ability but the abilities of the system we have in place (I do lighting). These experiences really got me thinking, where do I want to bring this skill and (former) passion of mine in the future? I've been doing tech for three years now (I'm a junior in High School) and, up until this point, I've been quite passionate about it. Although I plan on studying pharmacy in college, I had always had continuing doing tech as an idea in the back of my head. However, at this point not only do I not want to do tech in college, I really don't want to do tech my Senior year simply because I'll have to deal with the same two nutjobs again. Sadly, though, I feel like I'll have to do it because I will be by far the most experienced techie on the crew next year.
What do you guys think about losing interest in tech? Do you know of anything that might rekindle my desire to be up in the booth?
