Owner and president of Hall Associates Flying Effects—a special effects rigging company that he joined in 2000 and then bought in 2005—Tracy Nunnally has been involved in theatre his whole life. Comfortable from a young age with ropes, rock climbing, rappelling, and zip lining in the mountains of northern Georgia, Nunnally was tasked with the rigging duties in the theatre department during his undergraduate years at LaGrange College. Nunnally is well-versed in how machinery—theatre automation, motion control, rigging, pyrotechnics, special effects, and CADD—can best help tell a story.
