A practical guide to stage lighting with easy access to the content via tabulated sections and keywords, plus a DVD demonstrating techniques and effects.
This is a highly practical guide to stage lighting which covers equipment, lighting a performance space, special effects and lighting design. It can be read cover to cover, but can also be used as reference manual providing easy access to the content through the use of tabulated sections and keywords. The information in each chapter is presented at three levels:
A quick start: basic information providing enough to get started
More info: more detailed knowledge
Extras!: extended technical information and data.
The three strands run throughout the guide enabling readers to mix and match according to their level of experience or to fast track through to the information they need on stage. This handy, accessible guide is packed with illustrations, pictures, diagrams, plans and technical data. The accompanying DVD contains unique video clips to illustrate material covered in the text, demonstrating the use of equipment and providing examples of different lighting techniques and effects. This guide is suitable for a wide range of users, from school students needing a quick start to aspiring theatre technicians wanting extended detail; from teachers to amateur dramatic enthusiasts or anyone needing a quick on-the-job reference.
