I still have my Cinemoid and Roscolene gel books, that's how long I've used gel. We got some money and purchased 9 Mac Auras a few years back. That plus the 6 Mac 700's meant I was no longer in a JLG lift doing a 40 minute focus of 60 units. I don't for a minute miss my conventional rig and gels. I love the flexibility the automated rig gives me, especially when they decide to shift the band upstage 5 ft.
