I spent this week in NYC. It was fun to be back "home" and see old friends. I had two big events planned for the ALD Toolkit...
The first event was being a part of Stage Lighting Super Saturday. Scott Parker generously asked me to come speak. The topic was "The Assistant LD... why so valuable?" I have to tell you that it was difficult at first to boil the 500 pages of the book down into a short speech! But, I did it, and people seemed to like my talk. I was honored that several people came to buy the book later at my book signing, including Jennifer Tipton (which I thought was wonderful!). Here are some pics from SLSS:
The second event of the trip was a book launch party at the Drama Bookshop. It has always been my dream to have an event at Drama Books, so I was thrilled! A lot of friends showed up -- including Ken Billington who wrote the foreword. They set us up in the middle of the bookstore and provided some wine. It was really nice to catch up with a lot of people I hadn't seen in a very long time. We all had a lot of fun goofing around. The other patrons at the bookstore had a lot to put up with. :) Here are some pics from that event:
I had a great time. Thanks to all that attended. And thank you to Conor Mulligan and Chad Shelton who took pictures for me. I really appreciate it.
Until next time NYC!
