PLSN Hometown Heroes — Who’s YOUR Hero?

2016_hometown_heroes

It is DEFINITELY that time again, folks!  Time for the PLSN Hometown Heroes nominations!
http://plsn.com/lighting-hometown-heroes-nominations.html

From the Hometown Heroes nomination form website:

Each year PLSN honors regional lighting production companies with our Hometown Heroes awards. These awards honor the best regional lighting production company in six regions across North America: the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Northwest, Southwest and Canada. The best part about this is that PLSN readers – the people who actually work with these companies – get to decide who’s really the best.

Sure, we could just come up with a list ourselves, but where’s the fun in that? We are looking for your ideas on the best regional lighting production company in the U.S. and Canada. Let us know your faves (and, yes, you CAN nominate your own company).

Nominations are due by July 1, and regional finalists will be named shortly thereafter. Voting on the regional finalists will then take place, with regional winners determined by July 31st. The winners for each region automatically become the finalists for the 2016 Hometown Hero Lighting Company of the Year Award, which will be presented at the Parnelli Awards Dinner scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 22 at the Rio Hotel & Casino.

Who made your tour or show rule this year?  Who made you feel like your show was more important than even you imagined?  Get on over to the form and nominate them up!  This is your opportunity to show the rest of the industry who the good companies are, the ones who make things happen when things need to happen.

JimOnLight.com Recommends the ROGUE R2 Spot for the 2014 Parnelli Awards!

Ok, I’m blown away by this fixture, and I want to ask you, the JimOnLight.com readership, for your help in nominating this piece of lighting awesomesauce.  Meet the ROGUE R2 Spot from CHAUVET Professional, a fixture I’ve had the chance to rock on several occasions:

It has to be said, I work for CHAUVET Professional as many of you know, but no one asked me to do this or is paying me to do anything.  This is the first moving head I helped to get out into the world, and I am ever, ever so proud to work on this amazing team of engineers, developers, and industry experts.  I truly think that the ROGUE R2 Spot is one bad mamajama — it’s THE bright, quick, accurate, and fully-featured LED moving head gaining traction all over the world.  I’ve been fortunate enough in my career to see and play with pretty much every moving head out there, and the ROGUE series pretty much rocks my face.

GO HERE to nominate the ROGUE R2 Spot for this year’s 2014 Parnelli Indispensable Technology Awards.  I’m hanging my reputation on this one folks, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever had the chance to work on, to see born right before my eyes.

GET OUT THE VOTE!  Thanks for playing, everyone!  If all else fails, tell ’em JimOnLight sent you!
