Tom showing lighting UnitsSession covering the optics and functions of lighting units. Regardless of light source, either an incandescent or an LED, lighting units of many flavors deliver light to the stage in various ways. We will look at ERS, Fresnels, CYC wash units and more.

This session will introduce you to Computer Aided Design, aka CAD and how we use it, the computer, to draft light plots.

MLGeigerML Geiger presents a fantastic overview of the goals of lighting design. How lighting effects the overall look and feel of the show.

Three goals for the lighting designer: ML will start with a basic discussion of the fundamental objectives for the lighting designer and take us through a journey using wonderful images from her extensive portfolio.

  1. To create an environment in which the event will take place.
  2. To make the actors, who are delivering the author's words, visible to the audience.
  3. To assist the audience in understanding the story.
