Stage Lighting Super Saturday 2015 in NYC

Sonny Sonnenfeld and Scott C. Parker announce that this year’s seminar Stage Lighting Super Saturday selects New York City for its tenth annual seminar. Sonnenfeld and Parker are both thrilled with this milestone of ten years and are excited that Super Saturday is being hosted by the Drama Department of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts in Greenwich Village.

At 8:00 am on Saturday, January 10 2015, the tenth-annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday all-day seminar will take place at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts; located at 721 Broadway in New York City.

This years keynote speaker will be Jennifer Tipton. Ms. Tipton is famous for her lighting designs for Dance, Opera, and Theater.

She has been nominated for five TONY awards for theater lighting and has been awarded two. Ms. Tipton also teaches theater lighting at Yale.

Once again, 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. The seminar is designed for new and advancing stage lighting designers, who do not want to become Broadway Lighting Designers. Subjects include Stage Lighting 101, conventional luminaires, LED and Arc Source luminaires, color, special effects, consoles, moving lights, and other new topics.

Approximately 20 manufacturers and technical specialists will demonstrate equipment. Previous years’ supporters included Altman, Rosco, Apollo, ETC, Lee, SeaChanger, Strand, Philips, Robert Juliat, RC4, City Theatrical, ENTTEC, act lighting and more.
