Technical Theatre

I've worked on numerous theatrical events - musicals, concerts, discos, presentations, and dance shows. Although I've always focussed on VFX, I greatly enjoy stepping in to mix sound, improvise lighting, build set and rig equipment. Between cues, I always find time to document the event, for publicity and nostalgia alike. Visit my LinkedIn profile to see the full list of projects.


Cue Lights

Presenting the fifth version of my budget cue light systems; using an ESP32, this portable device acts as a cue controller by creating its own wireless network. Crew can use any devices such as phones, tablets or laptops to view cues in outstation or overview mode.



I've built toy cars with ultrasonic proximity sensors, handheld DMX controllers and cue light systems.
Currently I'm studying for an Electronic Engineering degree to finally get some consistency into my hobby.
