PLASA 2016: Check out what exhibitors and guest speakers were doing at PLASA 2016
This month: Symptoms of Acidity
". . . The Sennheiser headsets really come into their own in conjunction with the audio guide technology that brings, say, footage of Woodstock to vivid, 3D life. As you walk through the gallery, just the feedback from Jimi Hendrix's solo rendition of The Star Spangled Banner will incite you to agitate, or at least write a stiff letter to your local MP."
This month: Michael Chong
"I love music . . . It's great meeting bonkers, lovely, kind, warm people . . . having fun with work chums and forgetting to go to bed."
This month: Grand Prix past and present
"The trucks are kept immaculate, and Bernie insists they park with their consecutive number plates in order. However, the drivers find it easier to park them as they arrive, and then swap the plates."
This month: PLASA Rigging Conference 2016
"Mark posed a number of thought-provoking questions including 'Why has everything turned yellow?' This relates to the widely held belief that wearing a hi-vis at work is mandatory, an example of how misinterpreted legislation is failing us all."
This month: Bringing HDR to the Stage
"The performer only looks good on the video displays if the camera is shaded for the performer, in which case everything else in the picture will be way too dark to see any detail. In a wide shot that shows the entire stage, the performer in the spotlight will be blown out and look like a ghost. Meanwhile, all the detail will be lost."
This month: Elliot Herman talks to lighting designer Rick Fisher
"It's important to build good relationships with the whole team, since it's very much a collaboration. If it weren't for the set, and costumes, and sound, we wouldn't have a show."
