Complex stage sets should definitely be left to the professionals. However, I was wondering about when a producer or director of a school or amateur theater group should leave set design to true professionals. Of course it is one thing to have a few guys and gals who used to or still do work in the building trades help you, but I was thinking about the liability potential.
I have seen the old sets of high school plays stacked along the back wall of a stage behind the big black back curtain. I saw rough edges, nails sticking out and all kinds of other things.

Having an established area in place, I started a hiring process to search for people who would be able to create software for me and sell the software. I now have a workforce of about 60 people, working hard each day to write lines of code into useful software and sell that software on our storefront. We create a lot of useful software, like anti virus software, health and fitness software, and even some educational games for the kids. Proceed Examining Through
