Fuck Yeah Lighting!

Yesterday I went to an open house event for Vincent Lighting Systems and one of the Clay Paky reps I talked to referred to a gel frame as a “gelly box”. He’s my new best friend.

You can’t rely on other people to do their part sometimes. You just gotta do your work and let that speak for itself.

A Life Update

Sooo I kinda fell off the face of the tumblr world and a bunch of stuff has happened since then. So here’s some updates:

  • One of the 6 dance pieces I designed for in October went to a regional dance conference in Ohio, along with my original lighting but I wasn’t able to physically be there. My design was seen in a state I’ve never even been to? Alright.
  • The piece ended up being chosen for the national dance conference that’s in Washington DC (yay home) in June at the motherfucking Kennedy Center and this time I’m definitely going and will most likely be the youngest LD there; it’s not a huge deal for me though since I’ll just be remounting the design but it’ll be fun
  • I started dabbling in the world of video design, assisted on a show, and I really dig it
  • I started working on the mainstage show (that’s part of our children’s theatre season) I’m designing that opens next month and it’s fucking adorable, the team is awesome, and I have a beautiful set to light
  • My light plot for it is due in 2 weeks
  • I’m a little freaked out
  • But I’m mostly excited cause I get to do a lot of fun stuff

What are your thoughts on the VariLite 1000 TS Wash fixture and the ClayPaky AlphaWash 1500? I'm doing a design and I can't choose which one to use, and was just wondering if you had a preference between the two. Thanks! :) from lightingnerd97

Well to to start they’re two completely different types of fixtures.  The VL1000TS is a profile (spot) while the Alpha Wash 1500 is a wash light.  So what are you looking to do with them?  

Where will you be using them?  The 1500W lamp in the Alpha Wash requires 208 volt power.  Do you have access to that?  The VL1000TS uses a 1000W TUNGSTEN lamp, so it’s the same type that you would find in a leko, while the Alpha Spot uses a discharge lamp.  These provide two VERY different “whites” before you add color.  

So, what are you looking to do with your movers?

The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.
