Clayton Hutson is the Man Behind Spectacular Live Shows

Clayton Hutson is a hustler in the purest sense of the word – the man works hard, works long hours and gives 125% to everything he does. He even personally safety tests dangerous equipment. It shows, because those for whom he provides his services often request him. Who might those people be? Only Kid Rock, P!nk, Lady GaGa and the like. What does he do? Everything; that is, everything a touring artist needs: Production Design & Management, Show Production, Monitor Engineering, Logistics Management, Stage Management and Rigging.

Clay, as he prefers to go by, went to school for Theatre design and quickly gained experience working for companies that provide live entertainment solutions, corporate entertainment, Project and Stage management and even Billy Graham. Eventually he found his way to rock and roll and providing similar solutions and management services to touring musicians. He now works for himself and is in high demand by big name singers for the quality of work that he does. He double and triple checks everything that he is responsible for – yes, even the rigging.

That’s a big deal, especially when the quality of the rigging you set up is holding P!nk in the air while she does mid-show acrobatics. Nothing can ruin the reputation of a small business owner than knowing the product or service provided were not up to the customer’s standards. Clay does everything in his power to make sure the people in the audience are wowed every time. He is known for being the first person to arrive at the venue and the last person to leave. Part of the reason for his success is his organization: he ensures every task and chore, no matter how small, is acknowledged, assigned and carried out.

He has a unique, 360 degree, three steps ahead of everyone else kind of leadership style. He knows that he is the man paid to make sure everything works, and that’s what he does. He said in an interview with IdeaMensch “every piece of equipment must fit through the door, and it is my job to know the exact measurements of every door, in every arena.” It is essentially his job to make sure that the Artist’s shows look amazing, and he does his job well.

What kind of artist does he like to work with? The ones who are really involved in their shows. The kinds of artists that are looking to do more than just sing, to make their shows a spectacle. Lady GaGa and P!nk are two he mentions specifically for their show-stopping entertainment. He also mentions that Prince was an artist like that, and he really enjoyed working with him.

Lawrence Bender Love on Films

Lawrence Bender has to be one of the greatest film producers of our time. He has created wonderful works of art in Inglorious Basterds, Pulp Fiction, and Good Will Hunting. A lot of these films have won awards because of how good they were produced. In this article, I’m going to be going over Lawrence Bender’s bio, how he got his start in film and also my favorite movie produced by him.

Lawrence Bender grew up in The Bronx, New York City, New York to a Jewish family. Growing up, he was never really all that interested in the arts. In high school, he was interested in becoming a civil engineer. Some of the reasons why were because his grandpa was a civil engineer and that it had good jobs in that field. So, Lawrence Bender enrolled at the University of Maine to pursue a degree in civil engineering. He graduated in 1979.

After college, Lawrence Bender started to dive into the arts. It was his dream to become a professional dancer but an injury permanently sidelined him. This injury is what lead Bender to his second love, film production.

Even though I have heard that Pulp Fiction and Inglorious Basterds are great films, I haven’t seen either one. However, I did see Good Will Hunting and that was amazing. In the movie, protagonist Will Hunting grows up as an orphan. He doesn’t really have a lot and faces many challenges growing up, abuse being the main one. He works the late shift as a janitor at MIT. One night while on his shift, he solves a very difficult problem that receives notice from faculty and students alike. One night, the professor who wrote the problem in the hallway tracks down Hunting. That professor eventually becomes Hunting’s mentor. He leads Hunting through the challenges he faces in his life with both his girlfriend and with life in general. All in all, I like the movie because of the challenges in it. However, the movie has a good ending when Will Hunting flies out to Stanford to meet his girlfriend, Skylar.
