It’s that time, everyone is gearing up for USITT Conference and Stage Expo in Kansas City. As you travel to USITT today or tomorrow, I put together a podcast with Mr. Steven Shelley. You may know Mr. Shelley from his book, A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting or possibly through his company, Field Templates. Or, you may have seen Mr. Shelley at a trade show, how hard is it to miss him in his neon green cap and shirt?
Mr. Shelley was kind enough to share his beginnings in the lighting industry and what made him go into lighting rather then scenic design. Mr. Shelley also gives a humorous look into how Field Templates and his book deal came into existence. All the while, Mr. Shelley kept busting my gut.
Mr. Shelley also gave some great insight on how to make it into the industry and how to be successful at what you do while offering some tips and tricks to protect yourself and grow. If you are attending USITT this week and new to trade shows, be sure to check out Mr. Shelley’s Attending Theatre Convention’s write up, well worth the read!
