    Industry Awards

    "The first ever winner of the Fred Foster Award for Production Electrics, sponsored by ETC, was Rohan McDermott of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, who could not be at the event to claim his prize in person. The award was presented by ETC’s Regional Sales Manager for Ireland, & UK Rigging, Mark White, a friend and colleague of ETC’s legendary CEO, Fred Foster, who sadly passed away in February 2019.

    Rohan’s former tutor, Guildhall’s Nick Peel collected Rohan’s award, comprised of a £500 cash prize, a 512 ETCnomad™ package, a one-year Moving Light Assistant software license, a one-year subscription to the Association’s PLI insurance alongside the six-month mentoring scheme with a team of industry professionals. The judges remarked that Rohan’s documentation was outstanding."

    About me

    I am a London based production electrician and Eos programmer.

    I graduated from the BA (Hons) Technical Theatre course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in July 2019.

    In December 2019, I became the first winner of the Fred Foster Award for Production Electrics awarded by the Association of Lighting Designers, sponsored by ETC.

    I am currently LX no. 1 on SiX the Musical at the Arts Theatre, West End where I occasionally find time to work on other projects.
