Lighting Design is an art form unto itself. At the same time, lighting designers are part of a collaborative team with the director and the other designers, including Scenic, Costume, Sound, Projections, etc. It is the collaborative work of the design team and director that brings that art to the stage. Scott will discuss some of the technical steps required to be a team member in the theater production collaborative process.
