The drum guy is now the visual caption head?

quote name='Mrfunkyoyo' timestamp='1328114182' post='3116899']

Tim Jackson is the visual caption head, and they have a new drill writer. Plus the brass caption head has been been teaching/marching there for around 6 years. Plus they've still got the same brass arranger, they still have Michael Gray, and they've added Dean Westman to the design team.

I'm not really sure why all these staff changes are scaring people...

2012 should be an awesome Bloo year. The show sounds great!

Plus the aforementioned brass caption head's boss, the brass supervisor, has been there since 1994.

I don't know about 2011, but I know he did create a number of the visual effects in the 2010 program. It's definitely a great move.

Tim Jackson is awesome. Plus, they've added the drum major from 09-10 as a visual tech who won several visual awards when he marched. It's gonna be a good season.

Don’t be so hard on the poor guy yelling at the people who are “blooing” who thinks they are “booing.” I used to wonder why the poor Blue Coats were always loudly booed at DCI, believing they always had solid performances and belonged in the Top 12, what was the problem? Ihoped they didn’t hear the boos and noticed only the standing O. Then it dawned on me that boo and blue rhymed.

they will go out onto the field at a show and eveyone will yell blooo while one person will think they are booing and start yelling at the people.

I think the role of visual caption head would entail more than creating visual effects.

Does he have a background in running an outdoor visual program?

I am very excited for the Bluecoats this year. The show is an incredible concept and the hornline sounded amazing during the call-back camp. I can't wait to see how they move in the rankings and I expect a great reaction from the crowd during their opener.
