Theater students and teachers from southwest New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Washington D.C., northern Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio gathered at Towson University in Towson, Maryland, the week of January 10 for the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF Region 2, Festival 43). Our very own lighting industry expert and software engineer Kevin Linzey was invited to give a presentation on Vectorworks 2011 and Lightwright 5. Another industry veteran, Kevin Lee Allen, set designer and author of the 2010 and 2011 Vectorworks Spotlight Getting Started Guides, gave presentations on "Vectorworks for Students", "Vectorworks for Faculty", and "Using Visual Metaphor in Design".

"My focus in both workshops was on working in 3D," said Kevin Lee Allen. "I use a BIM approach to creating designs, renderings, and design elevations, and in turn I create files that can be shared with technical directors/scene shops for creating working drawings and for lighting designers to create plots and visualize their designs. My professional colleagues work in the same manner, and we are looking for graduate students who can work as assistants or draftspersons. That was my message to students and faculty."

In addition to educational workshops, the KCACTF regional festival also featured performances of productions by several colleges and universities, a scholarship audition, and an address by keynote speaker Avery Brooks.
