Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stage technicians or “teckies” traditionally apprentice for knowledge about their craft. This is a new, unique practical guide for teckies that can be read or used as a reference manual for all aspects of stage lighting, from equipment to lighting a performance space to special effects and design.

Information is easily accessed through tabbed sections and keywords. The information in each chapter is presented at three levels: “A Quick Start,” enough basic information to get started; “More Info,” more detailed knowledge; and “Extras!” extended technical information and data.

The three strands run visually throughout the guide, enabling students to mix and match their own personal level of study or to fast track through to the information they need on set. The handy-sized, accessible guide is packed with illustrations, pictures, diagrams, plans, and technical data. In addition, a DVD is included that uses video clips to illustrate the text, showing practical use of the equipment and examples of different lighting techniques and effects. The differentiated format of The Teckies Guide makes it equally suitable for school students, aspiring theater-technician teachers, amateur dramatic enthusiasts, or anyone needing a quick on-the-job reference.
