Hi all, I am a professor at a small community college where I also sponsor the music club. Our club has several shows during the year in our 200 seat auditorium. As a result I have been dubbed the light and sound tech for the college. We are currently working on a proposal to update the lighting and sound to make it more user friendly to other users of the theater. Currently they have to find me to get their lighting set up and then not F it up by changing things. So my plan is to use an architectural control to run pre-set scenes for common uses such as a stage right podium speaker, or a center stage performer. This way when the honor society does an induction they can have a scene ready made for them, and when the president wants a staff meeting he can have a preset scene, or any other common use. My question is how I should light a single location/speaker? I have read about using the McCandless approach of two fixtures at 45 degrees from the alcove and one from the fly high above and slightly behind. I have the correct fixtures to do this for each scene that we want to make. So what color of gels should I use, or should I just go with white light? Currently all fixtures are white light, but nearly all have gel frames. Thanks for any help, Jerry PS: I read the guidelines and fully understand the concept of giving up your creative position in a show, but I am not a lighting designer and I really just need to get a few lights set up well. I always run the music club shows from the control board so that is where my creative position can live!
