Do you know how many lumens your projector should
have or what kind or lens it needs?
...Or whether your lighting is correct in using PAR fixtures
instead of Lekos for a given task?
Regardless of your experience level, if your audio visual proposal looks like like a foreign language to you, you’re not alone. This course will empower you to understand what kind of gear, staff, and set up your event actually needs to function properly, look right, and be cost-effective.
This one-day intensive course will offer a hands-on experience covering audio (microphones, speakers, sound systems & acoustics), projectors & display screens, lighting, video, staging, run of show and production documents, teleprompters, who’s who in the production booth, configuring slide decks, what’s involved in “calling a show.” Vist the class page for an overview of the full curriculum.
