Ken Billington joins Super Saturday Faculty
Ken Billington, award-winning lighting designer, has agreed to provide the keynote inspirational session at the eighth annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday seminars. Billington says, "I am always happy to speak at any stage lighting educational seminar. I think that the Stage Lighting Super Saturday seminar is one of the best."
Sonny Sonnenfeld says, "The program is designed to educate beginners and new professionals who seek additional training. It will be 10 hours of hard work, fun, and a great learning experience." 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.
Scott Parker adds, "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, stage lighting 101, fixtures, color, consoles, moving lights, trouble shooting, paperwork, and other subjects. Starting at 8:00 am on Saturday, January 26, 2013, the seventh-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.
