From my dealings with Cameron he doesn’t know his arse from his elbow when it comes to the technical aspects of putting on a show. He didn’t know what a gobo was, but wondered why it cost so much to get a gobo holder. He wants an end product, and it doesn’t matter how it gets there. He hires trusted people to get an end product. He then oversees the general creative side, alongside the director. He manages budgets.
So he hires the best people, doesn't know anything about the technical aspects, and doesn't care how he gets to the end product, but yet he wondered why it cost so much to get a gobo holder? So many contradictions in your statement.
Does his hiring of the best people not extend to getting an accountant or 2 to manage budgets in each department? Or is he still working from a paper ledger book?
I am all about educating people, demystifying the process. If they want to train and work in the biz, these are the basics. It’s important not to belittle those asking questions, and call out those giving misinformation.
Again with all the contradictions. Please, never ever go into teaching. You clearly don't have the skills for it
