Ents

 

The Ents Crew is a group of lighting and sound technicians, as well as DJs, that design, run, and manage all of the live events that happen within the Student’s Association at St Andrews. Working within the Ents Crew, I built up a valuable knowledge base of live event lighting, designing and running the lights for a wide array of performers from The Vengaboys, to Wiley, Union J, Jedward, Hot Dub Time Machine, and many other club nights, from a normal Bop to techno (TV Noise), as well as music festivals and live ceilidh bands. Working in the Union taught me a lot about lighting, especially how to react quickly to what is happening on stage, something that is especially useful in theatrical productions when things go awry. I also learned basic sound-mixing skills to be able to run events with 5-7 person bands.
