The Design Team gets in, does the work, and then moves on to the next show.  The idea with this tier is that you join for one month, schedule your one-on-one Zoom time with me and then you're free to leave or continue at a lower tier (unless you want more sessions!).  We can take a look at your showfile and talk about how to make it work better for you, or you can tell me what type of topics you want to cover during a personal training.

And of course, you'll get everything from the Tour Crew level, including that Macro Package. 

Any member who stays at this level for multiple consecutive months will also receive unique DESIGN TEAM merch every 3 months. 

Crew member will need to have Zoom installed on a computer where they can access MA2 onPC. This session is limited to one Zoom member. Training is limited to grandMA at this time. I recommend that you message me on the Consoletrainer Facebook or Instagram page before you sign up.

About Cat West

Hi programmers! This page is for those of you who want to go beyond the busk. I'm Cat West. I make training videos focused on lighting programming. My regular gig is programming lighting and video: mostly for concert tours, but also live broadcast, television and corporate events. I started in a club in Vegas in 2000, and even worked as a training specialist for High End Systems, where I started their online video training series in 2006. I also created the official grandMA2 tutorial series for MA Lighting. I've been lucky enough to travel the world with some great acts, and to start my own company, Flash and Trash Works.

Joining my crew means you've got direct access to me. We can talk about real world programming techniques, ways to make your programming more efficient... whatever you're thinking about.  But, this isn't tech support.  There's some wonderful companies that already offer that stuff for free! 

Each tier is a little different, but all tiers will get early access to my Consoletrainer tutorials.  Then, if you join my Tour Crew or Design Team, there's the grandMA2 Macro collection to download, bonus exclusive content (including special group Crew Zoom Sessions) and even a crew sticker after 3 months. Design Team is for those of you who want to really dig into it with me in a one-on-one Zoom session - and there's extra quarterly merch for Design Team members that want to continue on for a few months.  Before joining the design team, I recommend dropping me a message via my Facebook or Instagram site so we can work out the logistics and make sure it's right for you!

Joining my crew at any level helps to support my free training series at youtube.com/consoletrainer. In those videos, I try to explain things as simply as I can. Sometimes this stuff can get complicated, but I can usually break it down.
