Here's some links to some of my new videos.
This one is just me messing around in the garage. It shows off the Chauvet 6spot fixtures off pretty well.
Here's a short promo video I put together from recent shows of mine.
Just thought I'd share, I know I like seeing what other people are doing. I'm a weekend warrior lighting guy.

You have some nice looks going on there. If I was to offer any suggestions for improvement, it would be to use less fog/haze. Basically, you want just enough to give the lights something to reflect off of, not something so thick that you can't see the backline (unless you're doing a Poe play).
Thanks! I hear you on the fog, I shot that video in my small garage probably 2 minutes after blasting off the fogger and spreading it around. Being about 30-35 degrees in my garage this time of year, I was a bit rushed to get back inside and warm up after bring out there 2 hours.
At shows I am more careful with the amount of fog.... well sometimes I've buried the band, guilty as charged. Hoping to switch at some point from my current fogger (Chauvet 1800 Hurricane Flex) to a hazer, unsure yet what model.

Nice about the moving heads! I have a hurricane flex as well.
I'd really like to use the moving heads I have but they just seem too awkward to really use smoothly with the controllers I have (DMX Operators). I tried for quite a while to use them at shows and never really was satisfied with my ability to use them on the fly, hoping that will be easier once I transition to a computer based controller. They would definitely add to the rig!

DMXIS is really easy to use and it has macros for movement shapes etc. I really like it.
I've considered DMXIS and Freestyler, ShowXpress. Probably going to get an Entec interface and go with some software a friend of mine is working on that looks pretty promising.
