About Me

putting together a video montage of photos

Planning my grandparent's fiftieth wedding anniversary celebration was one of the funnest things that I have gotten to do in recent years. During the planning process, I learned more about our family history than I ever have because I had to go through fifty years of photos to put together a photo montage for them. After I found all of the pictures, I had to find someone that could put them together in a video clip for me. I was fortunate to work with a great technician that not only put the pictures all on a video for me, but also added music to it.

Lighting Engineer Services That Support A Prerecorded Or Live Production

A lighting engineer may become an important team player who will provide support during your next prerecorded or live presentation. A lighting engineer oversees the design and installation of lighting equipment and support materials. 

Lighting Types And Functions

Ambient lighting, task lighting, accent lighting, and decorative lighting can be used separately or simultaneously during your production. Each type of lighting has a purpose. Ambient lighting, for instance, sets the tone of a defined space. It provides illumination throughout an interior or exterior space.

A lighting engineer will collaborate with the designer who is responsible for each stage set or backdrop that will be used during your event. A lighting engineer may consult with the designer, once the audio-visual plans have been documented.

During the consultation, the engineer will make recommendations about various types of light equipment and support materials that will add visual appeal to the location where the presentation will take place. Each type of lighting that an engineer outlines during the consultation will serve a specific function.

Equipment Installations

A lighting engineer will inspect the area where the production will be held. They will need to ensure that the lighting that has been selected can safely be installed within the defined space. Structural materials will be assessed to make certain that they are stable enough to support lighting fixtures and other equipment that is necessary to illuminate the space.

An engineer can provide support with independent lighting equipment that is going to be installed. For instance, you may decide to rent lighting equipment from an audio-visual supplies outfitter. If so, the engineer can make recommendations about where to place the equipment.

The engineer will identify areas where equipment will be installed. They will consider the roles of the people who will be participating in the presentation. Lighting equipment should not pose a tripping hazard or be placed in an area that will impede the presentation from successfully being recorded or viewed.

Lighting Adjustments

Once all of the equipment is set up, the lighting engineer may perform a test run of the equipment. A test run will indicate how well an audience or at-home viewers will be able to view the production.

After the test run is complete, a lighting engineer will make adjustments to the lighting equipment and support materials if needed. During the production, a lighting engineer may remain on call. They will be available to assist with any lighting issues that arise during the prerecorded presentation or live presentation.
