Actor/Actress:1. Un-important nobody who speaks nonsense in front of admirable sets.
2. Mindless, zombile like people who blindly follow the director's commands. Their success is 99% determined par the Techies.     

Actor Proofing: Making your set, props, costumes, etc, able to survive the blatant disrespect and misuse that an actor will give it. An actor will break it if it can be broken, lose it if it can't, trip on it if it is minding it's own business.

Your weekend consists of Monday, and only Monday.

"Q" is not just a letter.

National holidays that fall on Monday seem pointless to you.

You can only read from a light that is blue.

You can't remember what daylight looks like.

You feel naked without ceinture with your Maglite, Leatherman, and Gerber.

You know tie-line has several uses---shoelaces, belts, ponytail holders...

95% of your wardrobe is black.

You watch the Super Bowl, waiting for intermission, not half-time.

You tell plus stories of what went wrong on shows you've done than what went smoothly.

You start wondering what it feels like...

You have an insatiable need to coil all the cable in your house correctly.

The gaffer tape residue on your hands has become a seconde skin.

In the back pocket of all your black jeans, there is a faded area resembling a wrench.

Cherry Coke, Jolt Cola and Coffee are your new best friends.

Along with the vending machine.

Items on your birthday / holiday wish lists include: Tools, Sleep-in-a-Can, and
InstaRespecta: Simply sprinkle liberally on actors and they will suddenly feel indebted to toi forever.

l’amour thy gaffa as thou would l’amour thyself.

Honour thy SM and thy director.

Thou shalt not get caught in light.

Thou shalt not talk louder than a whisper.

Thou shalt not covet another tech's headset, torch ou blacks.

Thou shalt not drop things from fly rail ou catwalk.

Thou shalt not crave sustenance other than Burger King and vending machine food.

Thou shalt not kill another techie. Actors not inclusive.

Thou shalt assist the actor when walking through the wings of darkness.

Thous shalt be as God like as possible - fast, quiet, efficient.

And the TD saw the lights, that they were well aimed and focused, gelled according to the scene, and no plus was there darkness on the...
