Come Walk With Us, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

At Creative we’ve set up a team for *Making Strides Against Breast Cancer*.


Making Strides is a fundraiser put on by the American Cancer Society.

From Theresa, our team captain:

> This will be our second year participating in Making Strides. Last year we had 8 team members and raised over $1500. The funds are used locally to provide support for patients in the surrounding area.

The walk will be held at the Queensbury, NY High School on Sunday, October 24.

If you’d like to sponsor one of our walkers you can do so from our team page. If you’re in the Warren County, NY region and you’d like to walk with us we’d be happy to have you. You can join from our team page.

Look what we got!


Some of us think it looks a little like this guy from Robocop:


But maybe that’s just us.

FYI – High End / Barco posted a video about the Intellaspot XT-1 that you should check out if you’re interested.

From HES/Barco:

> ##intellaspot XT-1
> 20,000 lumens with an 850W lamp

> **Impressive light output at reduced lamp power**
> With a lower wattage than the competition, the intellaspot XT-1 remains the brightest hard edge fixture in its class.

> **Large zoom range and large exiting aperture**
> The intellaspot XT-1 features an exceptionally large zoom range, and a particularly large exiting aperture.

> **Most professional fixture in its price range**
> Barco’s intellaspot XT-1 is the most feature-rich, professional hard edge fixture in its price range.

> **High energy efficiency**
> The intellaspot XT-1 operates from 100-240V, with an extremely high output. [took a look at the intellaspot XT-1 back in June](, so if you’re interested you should read his impressions.

Waynestock III

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

On Saturday the North Country Hardship Fund will host Waynestock III in North Creek.

The Post-Star has a good explanation of the event and what led up to it:

>JOHNSBURG – On April 18, 2008, Wayne Bukovinsky’s life changed.

>That’s when he lost control of his 2001 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic motorcycle on Golf Course Road, about 1.2 miles north of Blackberry Lane in Warrensburg, and ended up being thrown from the bike and losing his helmet.

>He wound up unconscious on the ground and was flown to Albany Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition just after the crash, according to a Post-Star report from 2008.

>More than two years after his traumatic brain injury, Bukovinsky’s speech is slurred and he walks with a cane, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to help others the way they helped him after his accident.

Wayne’s been with Creative’s Rental and Production department almost since the beginning. After his accident he started the non-profit North Country Hardship Fund:

>As a way of giving back to the community, Wayne has started this organization to raise funds for others that may be in need as he was. Your donation and support for this wonderful cause will be greatly appreciated. The region covered by this fund will include Warren, Essex, Hamilton, Washington and Saratoga counties in New York.

Waynestock III will be held at the North Creek Ski Bowl starting tomorrow, August 7, at noon. There’s no charge, but donations will be accepted.

The following local bands will be there:

– Vinnie Leddick
– Blonde Roots
– S.L. Smith Band
– Phil Camp
– Don’t Quit Your Day Jobbers
– Donna Britton Band
– Finger Diddle
– Dogtown Cadillac
– Groove Therapy
– Hoffmeister/Keystone Band.

The Youtheatre 2010 Season

By | Uncategorized | No Comments


If you’re in the Lake George / Queensbury NY area this summer and looking for something to do check out Youtheatre.

From their website:

>Youtheatre is a musical theatre workshop located in Lake George, NY for students ranging in age from eleven to eighteen. We produce three Broadway musicals in a four-week time frame. The performers participate in all aspects of musical theatre including, vocal, dance, stage direction and management, lighting, sound, scenic design and of course acting. Our mission is based on the value of learning and self discovery. We strive to build self confidence and feelings of self worth. We hope that our players will develop an understanding that personal growth comes from sharing their talents with others. Our performers come from various communities but they all leave Youtheatre with two very important things, lifetime friendships and a love and respect for theatre.

This year the group is performing:

– Les Miserables
– Bye Bye Birdie
– The Music Man

They usually perform in the Lake George High School auditorium, but this year they’ll be at the Queensbury High School.

Creative Stage Lighting is Youtheatre’s Corporate Sponsor.

Compulite Vector at Expo 2010

By | Uncategorized | No Comments


Compulite has posted a story about Vectors at Expo 2010, the international exposition in Shanghai.

King Chou, a Vector user:

>Vector with its 16 DMX output, fast cue modification/delete functions and unmatched performance was perfect to create these many different changing scenes perfectly expressing the city themes.


>The study hall in the “City Being” pavilion shows a bookshelf circled by numerous small lights “turned on layer by layer by the Vector Red signifying the long road of study” said King Chou. He added: “I like Vector. Not only because its control ability, ergonomic design, but also due to its multimedia functions and powerful DMX output. It is easy to operate, and the system is very stable”
