Houston, We Have A No-Go on that JimOnLight.com New Jersey Trip

Well, uh, I’m not going to make it to Secaucus to hang with Chris Conti and the PRG team tomorrow, as well as not getting to see U2.  Do you know who we have to thank for this?

Oh, he’s cute alright.  But I think that I adopted a ninja serial killer special forces kung fu master kitten.

I was moving from the bedroom with my suitcase, and Lumen ran right between my feet, causing me to lose balance as not to trample the little guy.  As I turned, I think my foot came loose from my sandal, because it caused me to kick the dining table as hard as I could with my left foot.  I have three broken toes, a badly sprained ankle, and a kitten who just wants to snuggle while I sit here all goofy from pain meds.  It has to be a conspiracy.

Sorry about the tease there folks, I will certainly be rescheduling this trip soon, so we’ll have a beer together soon if you’re in the NYC area.

PRG at LDI 2010

I had a chance to get up-close and personal with the Bad Boy CMY at LDI 2010 this year, having the demo from Chris Conti with PRG.  I’m a big fan of the Bad Boy fixture, and I have been for quite some time – I posted about it from the last LDI, in Orlando in 2009.  They’ve added the element of CMY mixing to the Bad Boy – I’m a fan of the quantum color mixing, but CMY is also very important to have available for a moving head for the obvious reasons.

Check out some images, I’ve got video coming soon!

The actual PRG booth – a replica of the 438 grid panels they installed into the National Convention Center in Qatar.

Big beautiful beams from the Bad Boy luminaire.

One of my favorite gobos, InLight Gobos‘ “Rubber Band Ball,” that comes standard with the Bad Boy!

Bad Boy, Chris Conti, and PRG at LDI 2009

I had the pleasure of meeting and getting a Bad Boy demo from Chris Conti, product manager at PRG this year at LDI 2009.  Chris gave us the rundown on all of the features of Bad Boy – from optics and color to servos and touchscreens.  I am working on another interview with Chris for some more in-depth information on the fixture.

Have I mentioned I really like this hoss of a moving light?  That thing is designed all the way down to the smell!

I broke the demo video up into three parts, and I have embedded them below.  You can also check out the JimOnLight.com Youtube Channel, where all three are listed.

Thanks to Justin from iSquint for the second camera view!  I added this earlier, but it needed adding again.
