His typical day
Clayton spends most of his time running events as a stage manager. He wakes up as early as 6:30 am to get to the venue earlier than everyone else. After that, Hutson and his team members walk through the day’s schedule with the crew and come up with a plan for the day. Clayton and his team pay attention to how they carry out their activities before the start of the show because it determines their pace and actions throughout the day. Additionally, they break down activities, so that they can give correct directions throughout the day.
Making ideas work
Clayton brings his ideas to work by first visualizing them in his mind to see whether they will work or not. He sees the lighting and sound first and uses his experience to determine what might or might not work.
