Do you put media photographers into consideration when you’re designing the light show?
Personally, I do. Not everybody does. I’ve always followed the main rule of thumb when it comes to lighting: light the money first. Meaning whatever artist is on that stage, I’m going to do this big, cool light show, and it’s going to have special effects and video effects and maybe lasers and maybe pyrotechnics and all this other stuff, but before any of that can happen, you have to figure out the angle, the color, and the position of the follow spots where the performer is lit appropriately. They have to be lit in the fashion that’s going to tell the story of something iconic in a close-up shot.
What’s your next project?
I have to say I’m not at liberty to say. *Laughs*
