Richard Pilbrow Joins Super Saturday Faculty, January 22, 2011

Richard Pilbrow, internationally known lighting designer, has agreed to speak at the Sixth annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday seminars. Richard is passionate about the advancement of computer technology that allows lighting designers to free themselves from that same technology. He will discuss his recent use of the Apple iPad during a production of “Evening Primrose.” Pilbrow’s credits include “A Tale of Two Cities”, “Our Town”,  “The Life”, “Show Boat”, Broadway; ”The Sleeping Beauty” American Ballet Theatre, Metropolitan Opera; “The Magic Flute” LA Opera; many UK National Theatre Company and West End productions.

In 2010 Live Design voted Richard “one of the 50 most powerful people in the entertainment technology industry.”

This popular annual seminar is designed for everyone involved in stage, architectural, or entertainment lighting. The sessions are not too basic nor too advanced. Everyone who attends will benefit. The intense all day seminar will be led by theatre lighting professionals leading sessions about inspiration, training, product, and just doing it.

A dozen theater lighting professionals will speak and about 20 industry lighting manufacturers will on hand and have technical personnel and equipment to demonstrate. The tentative program includes inspiration, fixtures, color, consoles, moving lights, trouble shooting, CAD, Virtual Magic Sheet & LightWright, paperwork, and other subjects. Starting at 8:00 am on Saturday, January 22, 2011, the sixth-annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday all-day seminar will take place at the conveniently located Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York City located across from New York City’s Lincoln Center.
