FocusTrack is designed to give you all of the tools
that you need to fully document the lighting of your
show - figuring out which lights are used where and
then letting you add descriptions or photographs of
those focuses for a complete, comprehensive record of
the show lighting. It has been proven on countless
shows around the world.
But there might be times when you can't or don't want
to do all of this work yourself - the time available
to document a show often comes towards the end of a
long, exhausting tech period when you've already seen
quite enough of the show, or have to get out of town
to start work on the next one!
We can help!
FocusTrack - Focus Listing
Want lists of which lights use which focuses in which
shows, without having to purchase FocusTrack? We can
do that with any of the consoles FocusTrack supports,
sending you the lists FocusTrack generates as PDFs or
in a variety of other useful format. You won't have
all of the extra functions FocusTrack can offer, but
you will have a list of the focuses you need to
document. This service costs £150 for an average
show, and may be a little higher for really complex
productions. Please get in touch to discuss your
requirements and for a quotation.
Show Focus Plotting
The staff at FocusTrack have an enormous amount of
experience in documenting show lighting. We can take
over any part of the process, from analysing the show
in FocusTrack through to taking the focus
photographs, adding them to FocusTrack and creating
final CDs containing the complete show lighting
bible. The process can be carried out quickly and
efficiently working with your show lighting team.
Photography is carried out using high-quality Canon
digital SLR cameras and lenses.
Pricing for these services depends on what you need,
where you need it (we have people available in London
and New York, and prepared to travel!) and the
complexity of the show, and is therefore subject to
individual quotation. Please get in touch to discuss what
you need and how we might be able to help.
Production Computer and Photographic
We have a selection of computer and photographic
equipment available for hire in the UK - perfect for
equipping production desks ready to run a tech and to
run FocusTrack or SpotTrack to document the
show lighting. Please contact us for availability
and pricing. (In the US, why not try our friends
at Robert Hale Production Services
We have a lot of experience poking around in the
showfiles of various consoles, and a lot of
experience of putting shows on. Putting these
together means we are ideally placed to carry out
showfile translations from console to console,
particularly for complex moving light shows that
exceed the claimed ‘import’ capabilities
of many consoles. Worst case, we can get in and fix
the tricky bits or just the bits the console gets
wrong by hand based on tracking information from
FocusTrack. Recent work includes moving Mary Poppins from Strand 500
to grandMA for the new worldwide touring
productions, and moving Parade from a Strand 500 to an
ETC Eos for the recent LA production. Please

Custom Database Creation
FocusTrack is a database; in making it, and other
projects, we have acquired an enormous amount of
experience in creating custom database solutions for
many problems. Need to get your information
organised? We can help! Contact us to discuss how we
can solve your information overload.
We look forward to hearing from you.
