Why should designers get all the cool toys?
SM-Sim, LLC, was created in April 2011 to share tools and tips among stage managers. David McGraw founded SM-Sim after winning a grant from the University of Iowa's Innovations in Teaching with Technology fund to build the Stage Manager Simulator engine. The University of Iowa has a strong commitment to its stage management program, but it did not want to get involved in royalty negotiations or online sales. The company also became the logical host for the biannual Stage Manager Surveys and the training film STANDBY CUE 101. We are also considering hosting new stage management apps and other tools for our profession. If you have a recommendation or would like to partner with SM-Sim, please contact us.
