ROE Academy US Concludes Summer Session

Back To List

ROE Visual Academy US concluded training with more hands-on mapping, troubleshooting and wall-building as well as a taco lunch in honor the company’s guests and the 3-day Labor Day weekend. ROE Visual Academy US experienced a notable uptick in the number of women attending the LED technician training.



This summer session consisted of a handful of seasoned video and lighting technicians including production veteran and ROE Visual client, Richard Thornton, owner of Light Services in Little Rock, Arkansas.



Coming from a wide diversity of backgrounds, newly certified ROE Visual Basic LED technicians include a physicist, a former actress, a RED camera operator, a film school graduate, a handful of video-specialized stagehands, production staff from a prominent casino in the Midwest and IATSE members from the San Francisco Bay Area, who invited ROE Visual to bring the LED training to Northern California to a larger number of Local 16 stagehands who could benefit from the training.
