I hear good and bad things about Full Sail. What is it like for you? I have a graduate from it working in our Leko
Land now and he thinks he learned a good amount on moving lights and boards but not enough on the practicle wiring or design. When it comes to repairing Lekos, it's not what he is trained well for, much less they never got into the differences between a fillister head and round head screw, much less grade 8 and grade 2 bolts. Stuff like folding over the 16 ga wires to better fit inside a 12GA stage pin ferrule
just is not tought. Is this the case, or is your education more balanced and in depth as I would hope for a entertainment tech trade school?
If he needs to program a moving light or fix a data cable, he is all over it. Unfortunately, he does not get to do that much because wisely or stupidly, when not out on shows as more or less just one of the crew, he is in Leko
land learning that area. Design he says he mised out on a lot also. So from at least this person, I became concerned that you are learning a lot of high tech, but are missing out on the basics of design and wiring. Any thoughts, was this person asleep in class? Does it qualify you to use WisiWig and VectorWorks
, or should you still go to school for them - assuming you are at least getting really good with and don't need to go to Hog school.
For me at least, Full Sail is of a lot of interest in recommending it as an alternative to college. What's it like for you? Would you recommend the school, and for what type of person's career goals? Good in addition to a college theater major, instead of it given an entertainment career, or a waste of time? Is it full time as if a college campus with dorms, or more like a trade school or junior college. Are you full time going to light and sound classes or what's it like? Very interesting school. Don't think there are any others like it.
