I'm Robert, and I'm from the UK. I'm currently at uni, and so my involvement in techie stuff is mostly amateur. I like to get involved in everything; lighting, sound, stage etc and usually end up doing around 16 shows a year on top of studying, working and sports. Our venue is a lecture theatre (apart from twice a year when we get to use the professional theatre on campus) so, although we have fixed lighting bars, dimmers, audio multi etc, we have to hire in staging for every show, and have to contend with the fact that we can only use the space at weekends and after 6 on weekdays. I also work as technical crew in my students union, where I mostly work in the nightclub on lights, as a sound engineer for small pub type gigs or as general crew when tours come in. BTW, my main lighting desk is an ETC Express (or occasionally an Expression 3) but I use a Chamsys MagicQ Maxiwing in the nightclub.
