Lighting term of endearment. An action by the eyelids, used to attempt the reduction of retinal damage. With the advent of Moving Lights Lampis seem to be "squinting" less. Back in the Day "squints" bravely stared directly into their ParCans for long periods of time, to focus them. This is necessary as some Focusing is done in extremely bright environments. Squint, albeit factual, seems to be a somewhat derogatory term. Most lighting personnel prefer more refined titles, such as Electrician, Moving Light Operator/Technician, Programmer, Lampi and Designer.
