As you will see, this story will explain why I have choosen technical theatre :wink: maybe. As I have stated before, I am rather new to the technical theatre scene. IN the past year I have sort-of been in transition. Well, also in the past year the following things have occured: --I was hanging lights for our designer in the catwalk of our theatre at school, and as I was rechecking the lights on the sheet, I felt my leg kick something rather hard. I looked down just in time to see a small zoom fall out of the catwalk and crash into the balcony below. Apparantly the only visual damage was a bent shutter, a nd perhaps 20 years off the instrument itself. -- For the same show (yes they allowed me to continue working on the show) I was cutting gels for the cyc lights, and not having cut gels for these lights before, I did not realize the gel should not be....square....long story short the designer was so happy with me when he walked down to check on me he let me fix every single gel. It wall all but 6 (~50) --I lit a 24 hour theatre show and somehow programmed the board wrong and put the lights out on the actors while they were in the midst of delivering their lines. A few minutes scramble and I was running the show on submasters --and other small things like kicking a floor mic, hanging an entire row of lights....wrong....deleting submasters accidentally....not my submasters unfortunately. All things considered I would say I have had a great year and am looking forward to making more mistakes in time to come!
