but as the theater is being used most of each day, we have to work thru the night and early mornings.
Things are coming along and tonight at 11pm we will start programming the first section of lighting for the show probably thru most of the night.. In my past history with this show it has taken 3 to 4 nights of programming to accomplish the sometimes complicated designs that usually equals 180 or more cues for the 1 hr show. We will see how fast we can accomplish this first leg of programming tonight.
We still have Automation Programming to do which will also take most of one evening, as there is many times the Computer controls all the 10 elevators, Revolve, Curtains etc.. and all that has to be programmed in time with music..
The days of some stage tech pulling a rope to close a curtain are long gone.. now we have 3 curtains being pulled up to the ceiling a video screen lowering in & 2 lifts raising props up 6 feet. all with the push of One "GO" button. I love technology! I will be posting a Itunes Video Podcast later this evening, so be sure to subscribe to Extreme Vegas on the itunes store to see backstage footage and more! thanks for reading dont forget to comment and rate! --Justino Zoppe
