So i am the Lighting Designer for a concert my high school is holding. I am debating on a few different issues and figured i would get some input from the folks on cb. So here it goes: 1. I am definitely using moving lights, probably around 15, but the question is what company. I have used martins before, but i am leaning towards vari-lite. I will probably be using 6 washes and the rest profiles. 2. Hog, GrandMA, or Ion...... I have background knowledge in all three of these consoles. I am a fan of GrandMA, but i have heard good things about the other two. 3. I will also be using conventional lighting in this show, so i know that the MA console and Ion and do conventional, i am not sure about the hog. 4. Computer based vs. console. Regardless of what method i would get the wing if computer based is better. Let me know what you think. Its a state funded event so a have a decent amount of money at my exposure. How often do you hear that?!
