Lighting Design 101:
Don’t be rude to your programmer and blame things on them that are actually your fault… Because you’re afraid to work in blind and don’t actually do your notes…

Had a dream that our show assignments for next semester came out and I was designing Shrek: The Musical. Let’s hope this doesn’t actually happen….please no
rastafarian-girl asked: What school do you go too?
Just had to take some awkward family photos as a promo for my university’s technical theatre program…I can’t wait to see what they turn out like.
When your house LD/electrician used to be a slot machine tech, you’re gonna have a rough day. First: he doesn’t know the proper order for connecting feeder to a distro. That can get you killed. You all saw that arc flash video. He refuses to keep the shutters open on his movers, so the insides bake. We have at least 7 profiles with color errors. The list goes on and on, but my...
