So here I am, having posted around for the past few days and not even noticing this forum existed. ANNYYWAYS, hallo. I'm a junior (senior soon, summer's just around the corner) in High School, and I'm the schools Lighting Director. Bio (if you're bored): So far I've been LD for 3 shows--West Side Story (pretty simple wash rig, couple specials, cyc, sillhouettes galore), Talent Show 2k6:Class Dismissed! (11 Mac 700's, 17 Studio Colors, 5 Technobeams, controlled by a Martin Maxxyz), and most currently The Miracle Worker (a lot more complex, cues out the wazoo, bumps fades etc.). All in all I still consider myself pretty much a learning amateur; I've never receieved any real training, from a student or professional, so basically anything I know is from my own learning-on-the-fly experience or finding stuff online. Our school's equipment is basically all over 25+ years old, so I've never gotten to work with any S4's, and so on. Which explains why I'm very knowledgeable in a couple areas, but completely inept at others. At any rate, this board seems extremely friendly and helpful, and glad I found you guys and you've been so welcoming!
