Tom Derycke - How to talk to a lighting engineer - Part 2

 

In part 2 of my interview with lighting engineer Tom Derycke, he explains how he programs the lights while the act is rehearsing with the band and the key information he needs to know in advance. We talk about why the act should “block” their show during the rehearsal and why consistency is so important, especially if you want special lighting effects. You don't need to know technical language when talking to the engineer, Tom explains the kind of everyday language you can use to get the result you want.
