New IATSE Local 728 Members!

As many of you may know, LiteGear Inc. is an IATSE Local 728 union signatory company. This allows us to hire skilled lighting professional to do all sorts of projects. Well, today Local 728 is two members larger. Yes, that’s right, 2 of our very own were sworn-in today at the member meeting. First up is our lead shop tech, Sean Goossen. Sean has been working with us for less than a year but fits into the lighting business perfectly. After a couple of year in military college, Sean keeps our shop running properly with a welcome discipline. Next, my close friend and head of our Engineering Department, Alex Vazquez. Alex is an industry veteran having worked with Wally Mills at Cinemills on the classic “Silver Bullet” HMI light. He and I worked closely during our time at Mole Richardson Co in the early 2000′s. Together we created just about every modern product line they are still selling including Molescent BIAX, DayLite Pars, Tungsten Pars, and the latest line of Power Distro. And if this is not impressive enough, Alex then accepted an offer from Frieder Hochheim at Kino Flo. He worked on the Tegra 4 bank as well as being the head mechanical guy on the new LED Celeb 200. On behalf of the entire LiteGear family, I can say that we are very happy to have both of these guys as an integral part of Team LiteGear! Congrats boys, see you at Don Cuco’s…
