Smile Any Techies Out There? - August 29th 2011, 02:48 PM

So i have recently formed a love for theatrical tech. I hope to someday form a career of it, or something close.

Now, I know (or at least hope) Im not the only one! if you share the same interest, have any advice for those who are in interested, or have any questions, please reply, i would love to hear what you have to say!

By theatrical technology, do you mean audio and lighting? If yes, then yeah, I know a lot about it and I'm probably gonna be the head technician of it for my school this upcoming year. Is there anything in particular you want to know about?


Now that we're here, it's so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
An' all the mistakes one life contained
They all finally start to go away

How can I be lost?
If I've got nowhere to go?

That's exactly what i mean! (: i actually don't know much about either, but i know a ton about graphics and i am taking steps towards learning lights and sound! one question is, how would you go about making a living off of it?

I get paid $10 an hour to run events that other companies run using the school's gym and auditorium. For an actual career though, you can be a lighting design for Broadway, other types of theater, television, concerts, etc. It varies really, and audio is the same. :-P

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.

I make short films for film festivals in the area, lighting is a real art, one which I have yet to master I like camera work more then lighting, I leave that up to the boom man, then I tell him how to fix it when he's done!
