AV Concepts

AV Concepts provides audio-visual and creative services for a wide range of live and televised events. Founded by Red Mandrick and Nick Smith in 1987, the company continues to push the boundaries of technological innovation in the field of live production.

Flyman

Flys, not flies, refer to the permanent weighted batten systems in theatrical venues that are used to raise and lower scenery and electrics on stage. To fly something in or out is to raise or lower an object on deck via this system. Many theaters have made the conversion to automated flys that use motors or chain hoists, but manual structures are still the most prevalently used.

Limelight Productions, Inc.

Founded by William Beautyman in 1972, Limelight Productions supplies production equipment and installation services for the entertainment industry.

Generator Operator

Most commonly referred to as the genny operator, this technician works under the direction of the gaffer (chief lighting technician) on films and television productions. His or her primary concern is the safe and proper operation of all electricity generators that supply power to on-set equipment and location trucks and trailers.

Rigging Gaffer

For both stage and screen, the same is usually true: lighting takes the longest to set up. On any film or television set, you can expect the lighting crew to require the most installation time—with the exception of complex special effects rigs or especially ornery actors.
