We are proud to announce that a team of CCM Theatre Design & Production (TD&P) Lighting Design and Technology students won second place in Electronic Theatre Controls‘ recent “Show Us Your ETC!” student-video challenge.

The students involved in this effort included producers Nik Robalino, David Seitz and Ethan Peterson with assistance from Natalie Estes, Alan Hanson, Alan Kleesattel and Tim Schmall. Their project involved combining their technical and graphic skills to pixel-map Fred Foster’s face.

The top three prizewinners had the opportunity to choose one of three ETC brand lighting-control consoles. CCM’s team picked ETC’s top-of-the-line console, the EOS. Entries to the contest were judged for their ETC-ness: enthusiasm, talent and creativity. The competition’s winners were announced at the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) 2012 Annual Conference & Stage Expo in Long Beach.

The contest was the brainchild of ETC IT Specialist Jon Ironside,who praised CCM’s students for their creativity and delivery. “These people put some serious work into showing how they could use ETC products in a unique, unexpected and fun way. Not only did they come up with a great idea, but they put together a really well-made video to showcase it,” stated Ironside.
