Jennifer Tipton, Natasha Katz, Ken Billington and Brian MacDevitt group session
What an amazing session this was to start off our 2018 Super Saturday. From our press release announcing the session:
Jennifer Tipton, Natasha Katz, Ken Billington and Brian MacDevitt group session at Stage Lighting Super Saturday. Scott Parker is excited to share Jennifer Tipton's great idea for a terrific group session. Ms. Tipton said "This year I was hoping to bring several lighting designers together to be on a panel first thing and then spend the morning through lunch so that they could chat with young people at coffee and lunch." Scott Parker says "I'm thrilled that Natasha, Ken and Brian have said they'd join us. What a fantastic session to start off Stage Lighting Super Saturday in NYC on Jan. 13th 2018.
The 13th Annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday workshop, continuing its practical and hands-on educational presentations, will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts located at 721 Broadway in New York City. Super Saturday is produced by Scott Parker with the help of the NYU Tisch School.
The event, as in years past, is specifically designed to enhance, answer, and benefit the interests and abilities of all involved in the application of innovative stage, architectural, and entertainment lighting.
To accomplish that goal, the intensive all day Stage Lighting Super Saturday Seminars are led by active members of the Theatrical Lighting community for the benefit of new, aspiring, and advancing stage and event designers. Particular emphasis addresses training, inspiration, and effective techniques. Additionally, the nuts and bolts implementation of the many new and long established products that aid in the achieving the desired results are detailed; presented are the methods and equipment that can get the job done as originally visualized.
