I replied to your article request before finding out you are in the UK so you may not know Teddy. Are in Vegas next week for NAB?

Hi All, just a quick one to let you know that my trip went by the wayside for a bit - trying to find a green way to do it - however I am currently commissioned by Lighting and Sound International to write a 2500 word feature called Greening Up Your Act - I am looking for anyone who has taken innovative and effective steps to cutting carbon emissions from their venue, business or personal activities - all contributions and suggestions very welcome. I look forward to hearing from you.

If you are in Reno on your trip, you should look me up. I work in a theatre built on a huge scale. Guinness Book of World Records listed us as the largest stage in the world. Well over an acre on the main stage level. We also have to side stages, and a lower theatre connected via 5 lifts. The three at center stage cover an area 36 feet by 36 feet and are capable of lifting 240,000lbs.
So our Strand Dimmer system is also the largest ever built in Dimmer/Patch bay ever assembled by Strand. We have a lot of systems that eat up a lot of power. The idea of going green has recently been discussed. It might be interesting to walk through the room with you and see how our systems might be better served in green ways.

Hi I am looking to start a roadtrip around America early next year. I am looking for any companies, venues or individuals that might be interested in contributing to an article / book on the advantages of sustainability in entertainment, ideas on how it might enhance rather than compromise the creative process. I want to find those people who see it as an exciting challenge and not another horrible piece of paperwork to fill in - any suggestions, contributions etc very welcome indeed. Cheers x
