The light show for the 2008 Bucknell Theatre Dept. Fall Open House. Programmed on an ETC Obsession 750 using the internal SMPTE clock at 30 frames per second. I am fortunate enough to have one of the Moving Light Designer's Remotes, but programming movers with an Obsession is always interesting at best, even with the ML extension. I am happy with most of the programming, but not all of it. There are a few slight timing issues where the console just didn't want to be on time (not as bad as the end of the Love and Memories show, but still...). I tried to compensate some in the SMPTE code, but this thing has a mind of it's own. If all goes well, next year's show will be programmed on an ETC ION or EOS, which will actually be able to handle the full show and not burp at me.

I really like the rig design for this show, except for the part where the Intellabeams can't swing up far enough. The gobos that you see in the upper left and right corners partway through the show are projected on to two small grey projection screens that were hung from a linset downstage of the rig.
The reason that you see so few of the colors on the Intellabeams' color wheels is that we don't exactly have the money to replace all of the lamps for my little open house show, so most of the fixtures can't really do the more saturated red, blue, dk green, and so forth colors well at all - but the light pink, med. blue, orange, lt. green, and yellow come out really well - so that's what I used most of the time. Oh, and the green cones look so much better when you're seeing the show live - the camera really didn't capture them well at all. Yes, I could have done more with the 518s, but they would've been washed out a lot. Hope you enjoy Soundlight's latest monster, and don't forget to go check out my other 2 light shows if you haven't already!
