The 13th Annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday workshop, continuing its practical and hands-on educational presentations, will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts located at 721 Broadway in New York City. Super Saturday is produced by Scott Parker with the help of the NYU Tisch School.
The event, as in years past, is specifically designed to enhance, answer, and benefit the interests and abilities of all involved in the application of innovative stage, architectural, and entertainment lighting.
To accomplish that goal, the intensive all-day Stage Lighting Super Saturday Seminars are led by active members of the Theatrical Lighting community for the benefit of new, aspiring, and advancing stage and event designers. Particular emphasis addresses training, inspiration, and effective techniques. Additionally, the nuts and bolts implementation of the many new and long-established products that aid in the achieving the desired results are detailed; presented are the methods and equipment that can get the job done as originally visualized.
Intensive subjects include Stage Lighting 101 for those new to the art; the use of conventional long-established luminaires; the latest LED, and traditional Incandescent and Arc Source instruments; the implementation of color, special effects, mood and scene lighting; and choosing among the myriad of helpful mechanical implements such as consoles, moving lights, computers, and many others.
