Set for 21st and 22nd June 2016, Richard Cadena – an ETC Recognised Trainer, ETCP Certified Entertainment Electrician, and author of Electricity for Entertainment Electricians & Technicians; Focus on Lighting Technology; Automated Lighting: The Art and Science of Moving Light and Lighting for Modern Houses of Worship, would present the Entertainment Electrics Workshop for Audio, Lighting and Video Techs in India.The two day workshop is the brainchild of Santana Davis of J Davis Prosound & Lighting together with Graflex Inc, with the simple objective of helping upgrade the industry.
Knowledge is king and in the fast paced entertainment industry it is very important to be equipped with the right knowledge – it saves lives, time and even cost when things can be done quickly, efficiently and most importantly safely.
““When I came across this training in my early days, I was tempted to fly to USA just for this course but the travel cost was more expensive than the actual course fee. So this gave birth to an idea of flying Richard down to India so that the entire staff could be trained but we then expanded on that and decided to help spread the knowledge to the Industry as a whole.
“Now bringing in the course to India I hope the industry will take advantage of it as it surely beats travelling to USA for the course. Richard has been very helpful and enthusiastic in bringing his training to India, which I feel will help enrich the industry,” said Santana.
