LIGHTING DESIGN

Last Updated: 12/26/2018 8:42 PM

VWHS students have the opportunity to take a course in the fall titled Elements of Theatrical Design where they study the various technical aspects of theatre including set, costume, lighting, sound, make-up design and the production process. Throughout the lighting unit, students learned about the different lighting instruments, functions of stage lighting, how to read a light plot, and what design options are available. In the cumulative lighting design project, students choose thirty seconds from a song, create their own lighting plot, and with the help of Matt Saunier, NPAC lighting designer, program their fixture choices along with color and special effects in a visualization program. Students presented their work by explaining their design choices and running their light show from the lighting console.
