Gig time

At a gig working again and the band are great the sound is near perfect and the atmosphere is lively...

The one thing that is annoying me is the lighting in the club, I have studied tech theatre for 5 years now and the rule that should never be broken is putting coloured lights facing the stage, there are a few reasons for this and these are:

Colour from the back to pick up shape on stage and use natural colour light from the front to illuminate the performers otherwise skin colour is effected by coloured lights

The band will look like smurfs if a blue light is used or they look like space creature if you use green...

Designers of clubs and some theatre lighting technicians still do this and it looks unprofessional and just rubbish

So I have to sit here for the next hour watching the band changing from smurfs to space men to red demons

But the band are great as they are covering Beatles tracks plus music from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s

So back to work and I will blog tomorrow

my last day of uni...

So today was my last day at university and i am surprised i have come out of the day with a positive attitude.
i felt that i was going to miss university but after today i can say to the world

Bring on the next challenge...

During the past few months my blog has become neglected as i wanted to get uni out the way, 
I tagged along with some mates to help out at a gig in hull today and at the start of the week i was worried about my work situation now i have left uni but i think after my experience setting up a large scale show at city hall in hull has given me another larger outlet to keep doing tech work.

i think i may blog more at least once a week i think so watch out for that...


thanks for reading.

Blog about my life...

Just a quick update about my life at the moment...

I have had such a busy time recently that i am so confused about my own life...

As I am sat here typing I have had a day of meetings and work and I am just so tired but ultimately I have screw myself over as I have pulled my shoulder and part of my back when I was working today so my time at work was cut short so I could rest up at home, I went to the doctors this afternoon to get check over and I have been told to not lift anything  for 6 weeks as I have done some serious damage to my arm, shoulder and back...

This situation has not helped me as I have a full build day and a get in for out last university show this week and a full run of shows next week so that should be fun...

I read a blog by my friend tonight and felt very alarmed to read how he sees his friends as a disappointment and how we missed his birthday and this depressed him and made him close himself off to everyone.
Looking back over the time since this incident he has seemed distant and from his blog entries I find that he has changed and i dont know how to make it right...

Life is a journey and you will find it takes you up and down but remember the wrongs can be righted and life can change...

I have a few weeks left at uni so I am still very busy and I hope to be making more blog posts and videos soon...

thanks for reading...

Uni is nearly over

I am sat in the control room of the theatre at uni  at the moment and thinking about how my time at university has changed my life.

I have met some great people and the support of all my mates and the staff at hull college has been great, I have 2 more performances of this show today and then my last ever show at uni in a week or so and I am looking forward to making these shows the best they can be...

I was on the bus this morning traveling to uni and I found myself thinking about how things in life seem to happen for a reason and everything has a reason behind it...

If I had not done technical theatre six years ago I would not have found my calling in life and I would not have met the many people I have met, which would have meant I would not have met some of my best mates.

I would not be in the position I am in now and have had the breaks and the opportunities I have had to travel and to have done what I have done.

Life is what you make it and decisions you make effect you in the future sometimes for good and sometimes for bad, but ultimately every action you undertake will lead you to a point in your life that will make you look back and say I did it my way...

I will be blogging more soon as I will have more time to better plan my posts...

I am going to be making a few videos soon so be sure to subscribe to my youtube channel.
