The 2003 Selecon Lighting Masterclass – “Developing dialogue for discussing lighting”
Applications are being accepted for the first Lighting Masterclass held in London by Selecon on March 21st, 22nd & 23rd 2003.
Selecon is very proud to have Rick Fisher and Chris Parry to lead this unique event.
Places on this first Masterclass are limited, and the aim in devising this event is to expand your lighting craft with the assistance of two giants of the lighting industry, both working in different parts of the globe, bringing a wealth of experience for you to build upon. The Masterclass will be a hands-on lighting workshop held in a theatre environment and will enrich your current lighting skills.
To attend this event, Selecom is looking for people working within the entertainment lighting industry who have experience in lighting or re-lighting shows. You may be working as a theatre electrician, technical assistant or similar grade within this industry.
The three day Masterclass will use “the Light Lab”, a system used by Chris Parry at The University of California, San Diego where he is Professor and Head of the Graduate Lighting Design program. This is a practical hands on laboratory and will enable delegates to create lighting states set by Chris and Rick, which will then be critiqued by them and the other delegates.
The Masterclass will also include:
* Discussions on contrasting US and UK methodology in lighting
* The perceived differences between UK & US lighting
* Analysing and discussing the emotional impact of lighting in performance
* Individual and group discussions with both Chris and Rick and other LDs.
* Lighting improvisation classes ” Who’s light is it anyway”
This event is a colloquium and not a manufacturer’s exhibition.
In announcing this initiative Selecon’s managing director Jeremy Collins comments – “The establishment of this Masterclass epitomises Selecon’s commitment to and partnership with the best of theatre lighting practise around the world. Providing a unique opportunity for aspiring lighting designers to both extend their skills and network, I hope it will become an annual event”.
Places on this first Masterclass are limited to 24 in total and so Selecom requests that you send a short CV. Details of the cost and how to apply can be found at:
