The Invisible Effect of Visualization on Lighting Designers and the Production Team: A Case Study of Visualization at the Royal Opera House
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.
