Veteran Technician seeking to build!!!

Post by playawarri0r » Fri Jun 22, 2018 11:06 am

Hi Burners,

I'm a four time burner, going on to the fifth. Have a ticket, have a backpack and baby wipes. I'm an experienced electrician, lighting, rigging, carp, video tech. I also VJ and spin poi and the dart. Minamalist and survivalist.

Looking to build a big art instillation, small once are welcome too, cause they need lovin as well.

Any and all leads will get you smiles and hugs,

Welcome! You might list your city of residence to help in pre-playa collaboration. Because in-person face to face is more fun!

As you are an experienced burner, reach out in your personal burner network of camps and art projects.

You can list your skills on Spark. You can reach out to granted art projects. There are many Faceboo groups like Burning Man Generators and Electrical Systems. Any camp in the camp list with circus or aerial might value a rigger. Any camp with live performance, lights. Any camp with EDM may have a VJ, but they might want to test you as VJ too.

As you know, there is fire dancing everywhere and anywhere. The conclave books man burn performers. I don't know how that works, but I think groups apply.

If you are available for early entry build and staying late to strike, camps and projects may value that and put you on their early entry list/bracelet.

And maybe someone will private message you on ePlaya, but I would not depend on waiting for someone to contact you.

Hey there, welcome to ePlaya!
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

The playa info board has daily updates with requests for tech / builder help.
I got to troubleshoot medusa a couple years ago and had a blast.
One of my favorite things is fixing broken down art cars.
When you put yourself out there, you will receive the call.
Bring your tools, connectors, whatever. Have Fun.
