Seattle Load-in

One of the awesome things about the Seattle Paramount is that the seating can disappear and the floor become somewhat flat. This makes for an easier load-in. Literally we hang the balcony rail with a Genie Lift…!! This is a pic of the seats half-way restored!

It was a rough load in. But we did it. Lots of little issues. Most resolved. We have an artistic license box issue. An annoying box. There is a lot to do preparing for STL fox!

Nov 20

Yesterday, I found a broken scroller (on of the ones bought over the summer) placed with all the working scrollers in the shop. This has solidified a belief that has been building. Our students need to fix more stuff. You need confidence, a sense of responsibility and practice. I know wee can do better, so we will.

Workshops

This next term, I will continue having repair workshop time 3-5 MWF starting on Friday, January 11th.  I am expecting anyone in the sophomore class or a junior or senior tech major that does not have an assignment to do will be there.  I will give each student a project and all of you will be expected to complete them.  There is a lot to do in our shop and since initiative seems to be low, we are going to push you to do it.

Whoo – hoo!

First week assignments

Bse – chapter 1
cse – create a basic plan
Ase – get a plan together for intensive arts

Go to it, folks. I’ll see you next Friday, and I’ll be cranky!

School year starting

On August 10th we start the school year as faculty. I didn’t have much of a break or rest from school, but I am ready to go!

We have a new faculty member that will be working with us this year – Roz Fulton. Roz is going to step in and take over fundies, Vectorworks and Computer Graphics. Should be fabulous.

We bought some VLs and some LED strips this year. Use them well.

We are going to continue expanding our use of cloud and computer based posting and record keeping…get used to it.

See ya real soon!
