Paul English is the Production and Stage Manager for Muse. His responsibilty is to ensure the staging from trucks to stage back to trucks runs smoothly, importantly that all elements of the production are in place before soundcheck/live show.
"I basically make sure the trucks arrive in the morning, unload, set everything up and keep to a time schedule. Then we strip it all down. We have six tonnes of gear, that’s the minimum we carry around. The full production is three 50-foot trucks, rammed. How many lights are there? Gosh, I don’t know. Hundreds. I can get the plot out if you like and we can count them."
Paul recently won the "Produciton Manager of the Year" 2012 award at the TPi Awards.
