Ben Folds and a Piano
Working with Ben Folds as his Lighting Designer for his recent solo tour with just a piano and a drum kit was a challenging and rewarding experience. There was no touring rig so every day there was a different rig, light board and Master Electrician and three and a half hours to produce a lighting design. I listened to dozens of songs before the tour only to find out that he has over a hundred songs in his repertoire. The set list for the first half came out five minutes before curtain, and the second half was entirely requests. I quickly learned to pick up dynamic clues to figure out the changes, and how and when his songs were going to end.
Jesus Image TV, God TV and their amazing group of people asked me to Stage Manage the 2016 conference here in Orlando. They are a charismatic church with a full band, a line up of tremendous speakers including Benny Hinn, and Kenneth Copeland, and 2,000 attendees all day for three days. It was a life changing experience for a lot of people. I was definitely moved closer to my life long ambition to be a positive influence in every aspect of my life and to keep working towards producing thought provoking works of entertainment. What a great way to end the year, and look positively to 2017.
Lo Brico Brothers
TJ O'Brien asked to do a project to promote O'Brien FX at Dragon Con 2016. We went to I-Bar downtown and shot all four videos in one day. TJ, Jorge, and Tony had two prosthetic artists apply their appliances, and makeup and Tom Laskowski shot everything on a steady cam loaned by Micheal Bernstein. Larry did the site survey, storyboarded the trio's script, directed, and edited all the videos. We released one a week to YouTube before the Con started to create excitement and expectation for their appearance. Check out the finished video Lo Brico Brothers
At PGA 2016 Cobra Puma had a unique challenge in one of their display spaces. Mike Canavan of Canavan Scenic and Design came up with a complimentary answer to the lighting hang, and I adjusted the design on site and balanced the load to produce a striking backdrop to their product displays. They added a DJ to the middle of the booth to bring up the energy
