Richard Cadena10:30 AM Protecting the Stage
by Richard Cadena
Between 2012 and 2015, three performers were electrocuted on the stage and another came very close to being electrocuted. Why? "The primary reason these things happen is faulty grounding," says Richard Cadena, ETCP Recognized Trainer and Certified Entertainment Electrician. As part of the Techni-Lux Open House on January 14, 2016, Cadena will discuss the causes of faulty grounding, how to recognize them, and how to help prevent electrocutions on the stage. The session is open to people in all levels of live event production and is designed to help elucidate safe practices for stage performers, stage electricians, and technicians.

Tony Hansen2:00 PM Why LED Makes Rubber Duckies Evil by Tony Hansen
LED comes with a unique set of rules when using color changing fixtures for illumination. Our seminar is based on a popular magazine article of the same name and has been used in several trade references as a simple manner to explaincolor theory and how it affects the medium and the final outcome. This is a fun, lighthearted romp thru LED color presented in a way that anyone can understand to provide an awareness of the power and limitations of this new technology.

Panel Discussion 3:30 PM Panel Discussion: Lighting the Mouse, Wizard and Whales
