Stage Lighting Super Saturday Adds Sonny Sonnenfeld Scholarship to Lighting Workshop

The 14th annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday workshop, continuing its practical and hands-on educational presentations, will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at the New York City College of Technology: Entertainment Technology Department located at 186 Jay Street Brooklyn, New York 11201. Super Saturday is produced by Scott Parker with the help of the City Tech.

In celebration of Sonny Sonnenfeld's enthusiastic mission of training the theatrical lighting designers, technicians, and sales force of tomorrow, Parker says he is "thrilled to offer the Sonny Sonnenfeld Memorial Scholarship as my way of paying it forward. Sonny offered me a scholarship to the first Broadway Lighting Master Class and became a mentor." Parker adds "with this scholarship we will be able to welcome several students who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford the registration fee." To apply for scholarships, please visit: stageseminars.com/registration/scholarships.

Sonnenfeld was a theatrical lighting salesman, a teacher, an author, and a practitioner. Sonnenfeld was the New York City sales manager for Century Lighting (now Strand), a partner in Lighting & Electronics, and a sales representative for Colortran, ETC, Wybron, and again at Strand. Sonnenfeld founded the Broadway Lighting Master Classes. He interfaced, on a regular basis, with theatre consultants, Broadway lighting designers, architects, consulting engineers, and architectural lighting designers. Sonnenfeld has contributed to the professional development of many of today's leading architectural lighting designers. He also enjoyed creating the lighting designs for many non-professional shows.

The only event of its kind, Stage Lighting Super Saturday is a one-day intensive series of workshops that provide practical and hands-on educational training to benefit the interests and abilities of all involved in the application of innovative stage, architectural, and entertainment lighting. 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. In addition to the workshops, there will also be an impressive manufacturer's showcase featuring approximately 20 technical specialists, as well as manufacturers of superior equipment, will demonstrate techniques and newly available cost-effective products. Among the present and past manufacturing contributors, all noted for their lighting expertise and practical implementation, are such stalwarts as A.C. Lighting, ACT Lighting, ADB Stagelight, Altman Lighting, Apollo, Barbizon Lighting, Canto USA, Chauvet Professional, City Theatrical, DraftyApp, Elation Professional, ENTTEC, ESP, ETC, 4Wall, GLP, High End, Lee Filters, LEX, Lighting&Sound America, Nemetschek NA (aka Vectorworks), RC4 Wireless, Robe, Rosco, Shadowstone, Selecon, Strand Lighting, and TMB, among many others.
