That's impressive that he visualizes in lights.
It's interesting to think about the idea that as audience members some lights should just blend in, but as reviewers we need to pick out those elements.
I liked that he mentioned Period plays having lighting that fits the period. That's a detail that people might not necessarily think about, but I will from now on!
The lighting cue part was great and his comment about it being tiring is so true! I've seen productions with too many cues and it takes away from the show.
I found it interesting how he compared/contrasted dance's lights. It showed the importance of proper lighting.
I loved how he used Flowers for Algernon and The Giver as examples. Two of my favorite stories, and really open to artistic creativity.
Learning about eye fatigue was very useful, and I look forward to keeping that in mind as I see future shows.
I really liked the explanation of front lights, side lights, and back lights. Especially when he was talking about Wicked it helped me think about the degrees of freedom and how each light has a specific color and angle. As a person with non-white skin hearing how the lighting can be manipulated to accommodate many different color schemes much like Elphaba and Glinda's skin, or the maroon silver and pink set for Legally Blond was very interesting. Watching the video added another dimension to the stage for me and has made me more aware of the particulars for lighting. In the history portion of the lecture I thought the part about how guang-ho the Romans were was really funny. Who actually fills up a coliseum with water and boats just for a naval battle scene? This lecture for me really incorporated my prior history, engineering, and theatre knowledge.
I really enjoyed watching this workshop. I could tell how much lighting means to him and his wide range of knowledge was really helpful. The history was very interesting and the LEDs were really cool to learn about. I had learned about how gels filter light out in a different workshop but I didn't know how LEDs are grown in different colors. This has been very helpful to me and I will defiantly be more aware of this super helpful aspect of theater and other types of performance.
