Why Draw Everything Twice?
By Tim Routledge | Webinar on December 5th, 2018
From initial sketch to the delivery of a world tour using one software has to be ultimate workflow. Some people are skeptical on how differing software offers better facets of each stage of the process. Routledge argues when time spent making the software work for you why would you spend hours designing your show twice. Routledge is an award-winning lighting and creative designer creating television lighting designs, music concerts, outdoor events, award shows, and variety shows from Beyonce to ELO and XFactor. Tim is also well known for his design of a number of popular lighting fixtures – the Patt 2013, Pickle Patt, One Patt, and Pixel Patt.

The Invisible Effect of Visualization on Lighting Designers and the Production Team
By James Simpson | Webinar on January 16th, 2019
Using case studies of productions at the Royal Opera House (UK), Simpson will explain how visualization was the unsung hero in the design process and made a critical difference in creating world-class Opera and Ballet.
James Simpson is the lighting visualizer at the Royal Opera House and over the last ten years has observed the working patterns of over a hundred lighting designers and the subliminal effect that visualization has had on their design process. In this webinar, James will describe some of the less discussed benefits that occur when design teams go through the process of lighting a show in visualization, the power of relationship building, the importance of a common language and the benefits that aren’t necessarily to do with having cues and focuses stored in a lighting desk.
