ILLUMINATION FOR ALL

Our first Intensive for Theatrical Mindfulness

August 26 3pm-5pm

August 28 3pm-5pm

Illumination for All is a virtual lighting design workshop (4 hours split into 2 sessions) for anyone in performance or production that feels that they could benefit from a refresher (or introduction) to the power of light.  A team of designers from across the US will tackle not only the fundamentals of lighting color theory, but also how our diverse skin tones can be affected by it.  Participants will gain insight on the applications of lighting through numerous opportunities in live entertainment, themed entertainment, and film & television.  We will also tackle the challenges of diversity in the workplace and hopefully inspire everyone to embrace our similarities so that we can continue to collaborate and create brilliant, cohesive productions.  Have you lit dozens of productions?  You’re welcome here.  Do you hope to understand lighting better so you can emphasize your costume or scenic designs?  We would love to have you.  Directors, producers, performers, stage managers and even curious lovers of entertainment lighting are all encouraged to join us for these workshops that will hopefully launch you into your own further discovery.
