I just got finished working our theater for a company that rented it out or a play. I was in charge of lighting and spots. We use Altman Voyagers at our thater. Anyway, I showed up at a rehersal at the right time 6:00 PM. the company was unprofesional and usually started 2 1/2 hours late. When I got there, I powered up the spots and cheked iris sizes, and all was fine. Just a little backround info, for a couple years, one spot was much dimmer, and purpler that the other, and we could never fix it. Well, now it is fixed. As the TD & I had an argument over who was responsable for a light board system crash (it was his fault, he started pressing buttons that he didn't know what they did), I was told to check in on the spot guys. A few minutes after being up there, I hear a loud noise and see the most fantastic fireworks display from our #2 spot. There is nothing like a 600 watt halogen bulb exploding. We got the bulb replaced, but cleaning up the glass shards was something else. Besides that, the kid using that spot was from the company that rented the place. He was scared S%$#*less about using the spot anymore. It had been one of those nights when everything went wrong. I was just glad no one got hurt. Keep that in mind if you see a dim purple lamp with no gel.
