The venue that was originally designed to be the Flex theater at Skyline College was annexed by the art department and utilized as an art gallery for many years.  The original lighting system was woefully inadequate for an art gallery so I assisted in designing a new lighting system and budgeted it for $38,000.  I handled the installation myself and replaced the original analog dimming system with two portable 24 channel ETC sensor packs and tying them into the theater’s service as well as wiring the individual dimmers into the existing overhead circuits with eight 12 channel multi-cables to create a new 1 to 1 circuit-dimmer-channel patch that was much simpler, and safer to use for faculty as well as students.  Along with the package I designed was included 40 Source Four pars, an ETC Element console, Two touch screens, a Wi-Fi router, and an iPad for architectural control.  I built a wall mount for the tablet so that the console could execute pre programmed scenes with a touch of the button using the iRFR remote app in lieu of a separate architectural control system.
