Hi I'm fairly new here I've been lurking a little and finally decided to join. I am a young designer with a b.f.a in theatre with a contraction in lighting design. I guess my grief is where I am it's hard to get a lead designer gig because of my age. Why is it so hard to give the rookie a chance instead of always hiring the veterans? I have been doing small one day gigs a local bands but I would like a shot at a larger scale production.
