  • The Hamilton Project

    You’ve learned the basics of Eos Augment3d. But do you have what it takes to apply your knowledge to a real production?

    Welcome to The Hamilton Programming Project, a collection of exercises that use actual touring paperwork from the Broadway musical Hamilton to help you practice in Eos Augment3d – and learn how Broadway tours operate!

    You will be playing the roles of Associate, Assistant, and Programmer as you finish prep on the provided show file. This will involve getting ready for focus, preparing conventional and moving light gobo loads, focusing fixtures, and, finally, checking your work with real cues from the show – all with Eos Augment3d as your virtual venue.

    The Project Guide will help you through some of the basic tasks, but it is not designed to be fully instructional. This project mimics professional‐level operations, so it is up to you to figure out how to complete it with accuracy and speed! You can make magic sheets, record new snapshots, merge in your favorite macros – the file is yours to grow. With Howell Binkley’s Tony Award®‐winning lighting rig at your fingertips, what programming or design ideas will you come up with?
