Laser F/X On-line Newsletter - Special Reports
Pangolin School and Open House
The first event of the day was the Pangolin School, with Bill Benner. There were two sessions, beginner/intermediate in the morning, and intermediate/advanced in the afternoon. Rather than formal presentations, the Pangolin users present were encouraged to ask questions and discuss issues about the software and hardware that were important to them.
Saturday evening Michael Roberts welcomed laserists to his studio for registration followed by a home-cooked meal at the Open House. The menu had an Italian theme with pasta and salads and the buffet tabel was decorated with pasta, grapes and a wine bottle. Unfortunately the weather did not co-operate this year and it was chilly, so most people stayed indoors to smooze and discuss lasers.
After dinner, the Spectronika CV laser was set up with projector, controllers and a small sound system in the parking lot. Laserists bundled up and ventured outdoors to play with the system and experiment with the effects. The laser is so bright that it was clearly visible in the cool breezy parking lot, with no smoke machine, even when standing under a 1,000 watt sodium vapour security light!
After the party ended, the crew assembled the equipment needed and transported it over to the hotel to set-up the Laser Theatre and prepare for the Sunday seminars and Brewster awards.
