No Experience Necessary!
A car door slams shut; loud thunder follows lightning; the phone rings 3 times! All this is made possible on stage through magical sound effects.
The spotlight shines on the star of the show or the incredible soloist. The mood changes in a play and the stage turns a calm blue. All this is made possible through the magical effects of lighting.
The scene takes place in an old fashioned living room. The walls are 1950's, an old fashioned telephone and typewriter sit on the desk. The set and props put the audience in the time and place.
A fire starts and smoke comes billowing thru - why? - because of special effects!
The videographer is making sure Cresswind performances are professionally captured and saved in perpetuity for all to enjoy.
To centralize and manage the technical resources which support performances and programs presented to the Cresswind community and offer an outlet to all who may wish to contribute, participate and have fun in the process.
