During my work experience I have managed to acknowledge how Youth 4 Youth cooperate with one another. I have even been fortunate enough to partake in a few of their activities. As you can see in these pictures, Youth 4 Youth work at excellent standards when setting up stage electrics. I respect their enthusiasm and commitment to their network.What I enjoyed most is their ability to work at tremendous standards whilst working as a team. It was really interesting to see how well 15 – 17 year olds could gather the maturity to do their job sufficiently. Society today really are mislead when it comes to teenagers’ and their standard of ‘manners’.
At times I would be entertained by some of their sillier behaviours. But that’s what made it all the more enjoyable. People at Youth 4 Youth certainly have character, which is definitely one of the reasons why I chose to come here for my work experience. However, even when at times of laughter, they would always manage to maintain their level of organisation. Which I thought was very professional of them. Kez's guide to Youth For Youth equiptment:
Stage Monitor System:
Youth 4 Youth provide stage monitor’s to allow each individual performer hear other performers, plus themselves, on stage. That way the performers can stay in tune with one another which initially helps them focus on entertaining. Alpha-pack
Portable light controller:
A light controller is a device which controls the way the electric lighting works, whether it’s for a stage concert or a performing arts production. By using this device we can use filter jells to create luminous effects which give off either more tension or more ease.
In any type of performance, using these lights extends the chances of entertaining the audience even further. The I-Rock has a lense which reflects numerous patterns. Without having these lights the performance becomes dull and hardly visible. That is why Youth 4 Youth work extra hard just for the enjoyment of the visiting company.
Passive speaker require a separate amplifier in order to produce sound. They are mainly used in concer
ts to increase the sound of the performer. When we use these, difficulty in hearing the performers decreases. This is why these speakers are very important during performances
