Yesterday, as I was frantically sending out “Got any work” texts, I got a call from someone I’ve only worked with a few times.
“We need a dimmer board operator, and I got your name from (mutual friend). it’s three weeks of work. Do you want it?”
Do I want it? I’ve never heard such a silly question. Of course I want it.
Downside? It’s a console I haven’t had a lot of practice on, but apparently all the other dimmer board operators are working as they’re willing to be patient with me while I figure it out.
I’ve got a one on one booked at the company that makes the console, I’ve watched all the video tutorials, and I have a friend who knows said console on speed dial. I might not be ready, but I’ll sure as hell be able to fake it.
And it’s on a stage, so I’ll have some air conditioning, which is awesome as it’s currently hot as ass here in LA.
