I'm another newbie here...and a relative newbie to theatre tech. I just got a job as Tech Advisor for a public school district's (upstate NY) new performing arts center. They hired me knowing full well I'm lacking in the lighting side of things (they have a brand new Strand 300 Series console). They do have a couple students who are already very comfortable running the lighting so I hope to learn a lot from them. I have a music performance background and a pro audio background (I work in radio and also do a ton of freelance recording/mixing projects) but still hope to step back and let the students show me what they already know. Any other input on how I should progress? In just the couple days of browsing this site, I am amazed at the wonderful resources that can be found here. Consider me a regular!
