    Hey everyone,
    I am a Sound/lighting/recording/Camera/video technician and do pretty much anything else that either plugs into something or runs electricity. I am a TD for a local private school here in Canada, and also a Producer (like a sub TD like i keep saying) at another church. I also run cameras for yet another church. Tech has become my life and my curse. I bet most of you know the senario: Hey! we have a dance coming up, can you "tech" it? or Can you help me hook this tv up?...

    Ah well, 'tis me and my life

    Why, spending every secound of free time that you have in the theater is safer.....

    Besides, we get to play music loud, and flash lights. That makes us cool.......... right?......... right?.........please.......?

    What school are you a TD at? I attend a private school in Ontario, and I've always wondered what other private schools are represented here.

    There have been a couple times I've pulled an all nighter at the theater. BTW, welcome to the community, Producer! That goes for you too, JP12687! Hope to see (both of) you around the forums often!

    All nighter's are why my home is the booth. i do all nighters 2 times a year.
    I agree, Its a bit scary going out into the "real life" world. I'll just stay here wrapped up in 2400foot XLR (see punching bag - intern) cables with my Venti Carmel Machiato. But looking at a strobe? no offense but maybe you need to get some screws tightened.
    I'm the TD at a christian school in Beautiful British Columbia.
    but I'm off to my church where i need to RE HANG ALLLLL my lights. some crazy people came in and set up Martin MiniMac's and hazers and other crazy lighting equipment for a wedding. To do that they took all MY lights down. TTYL

    You are all invited to the funeral of the guy who OK'd this without telling me in advance. ;)

    Rad- They never LET you stay, you just happen to stay without anyones knowledge. the pluses of having the keys to the auditorium and knowing the custodians.

    Producer- did you say theyused minimacs and hazers for a WEDDING? that must have been some kick ass wedding.
