name is Chris Runciman. I ran a lightshow in Exeter in Devon
UK in the middle 60's called Brave Goliath's Lightmare.
Shows at Exeter Uni.. Tech College and Art College and various
clubs and 'happenings' , Ballet Rombert at Northcotte Theatre.etc.
I was 'headhunted' by the members of Principal
Edwards Magic Theatre to join the group. Gave up my
day job to go full time with them.
The first long tour was as support to the Pink
Floyd on their Piper at the Gates of Dawn Tour, sounds
very grand now but most of the gigs were clubs and Floyd
were in a Ford Transit !!
We shared projectors but not secrets.............I later met
up with Claire Seargent (Pale
Green Limousine Lightshow) at The
Temple in Wardour Street London. As we arrived about 4am
to do a late show she offered me the use of her projectors
to save on set up time. Unfortunately she had removed the
heat filters as her show was predominantly liquids but mine
was a mix of slides and fluids......you can imajine my face
as some of my prized images melted quite spectacularly during
the show! Claire and I then became an item for a while.
My first real true love and I met her over a projector..............
35+ years on and I am still in the show production business..
