Hi, I'm Colin. I feel in love with the technology behind the scenes in theater a few years ago, specifically lighting. So much so that I decided I want this to be my career. I have read the "Getting a job in the industry" and the "College FAQ" many times and still plan to read them many more times in the coming months. They are great information. I am going into my junior year at high school and have started looking at the requirements for technical theater majors at colleges in my area. Most of them want a portfolio of my work and to go over that in an audition. My question for the forum, is what should I be keeping in my portfolio? I assume that pictures of the work I have done in shows, lighting design and etc is all good to keep. I have also done a vectorworks 3D model of my schools auditorium, done a lot of programming for my church's lighting system on M-PC. Is this all stuff colleges would like to see? Should I be documenting all technical theater related stuff that I have done through pictures for a portfolio? Also in my time in high school, is there any other recommendations you can give me to continue to prepare myself for college and what they will expect? I plan to continue do lighting design and programming at my school, and for my church (we are building a new church soon, with a new lighting system, so there will be plenty for me to do), and try to get involved with some other local theaters to do some work. Thank you for any advice!
