"Stage Lighting Super Saturday," a full-day of seminars, workshops, and "inspiration" for stage lighting designers and technicians, will take place in New York City on January 13, 2007 at Pace University's downtown New York campus, now the home of the Bravo Network's acclaimed Inside the Actor's Studio.
The seminar is being produced by Sonny Sonnenfeld, a major player in the stage lighting field from his base at Creative Studio Designs, and Scott Parker, Professor and Technical Director in Pace University's department of Performing Arts, who is also the Chair of the New York Area Section of USITT (United States Institute of Theater Technology.) Several veteran Broadway professionals will speak, along with professionals in a number of stage lighting disciplines.
Said Sonny Sonnenfeld, "It will be 10 hours of hard work, but it will also be fun and a great learning experience. We will start at 8 a.m. and finish at 6 p.m. The faculty will consist of professionals who understand the needs of lighting designers in a wide range of career levels and respond to them."
The tentative program includes Stage Lighting 101, fixtures, color and scrollers, gobos and rotators, projections, consoles, moving lights, visualization and pre-lighting, programming, troubleshooting and maintenance, paperwork, managing your crew, and relationships with others.
There will be a manufacturer's showcase with technical personnel on hand to show participants their latest equipment. Says Sonnenfeld, "The program will not be too advanced or too basic. Everyone attending will benefit. Attending the seminar will help you be a better lighting designer, a better technician, and a better person."
Tuition is $150 per person, with breakfast, coffee breaks and a box lunch included.
The program is receiving additional support from: The New York Area Section of United States Institute of Theater Technology.
