I decided I wanted to be in entertainment in 10th grade after my first year of taking the Television Production program available at my high school.
I went on to attend Valencia College's Film Technology program where I focused strongly on learning how to properly handle conventional lighting fixtures for film, TV, and Theatre, including the appropriate support grip-wise. In short, Grip/Electrics is my main focus.
So: HMIs and Tungstens, KinoFlos and LEDs, Practical lamps, PARs, Fresnels, zips, open faced lights, chimeras, BFLs, diffusion media, bounce media, color temperature, color corrrection and conversion (ha), butterflies/rags, etc. That's what I understand as far as anyone should be concerned.
I've been on a couple features, some shorts, and had a little paid union work.
I always do what I can to help, and I'm eager to learn from those who have been at this longer than I have, or as long as I have, young or old. Knowledge is an innumerable gift from anyone we shouldn't turn down.
Anyway, for anyone who actually read all this, we're probably somewhat acquainted; if not, well, I'm glad this was interesting for at least one person haha.
