Practising with lights!

Even though I have taken on the role of stage manager. I have also been thinking about our lights and what design would suit the performance best. Overall, I think simple lighting such as warm washes and spot lights would suit our performance the best. But I had an idea that I wanted to try out. Below is a diagram in which I thought would look effective and a representation of a poppy.

Lighting state


Here is my attempt…


I managed to create the lighting effect but I realised that too much colour was involved and it is a very dramatic contrast between the washes I had and this particular design. Therefore, I had to think of something else. This is where the image of the poppy projection idea came into place. I asked Louise, the assistant stage manager whether she would be able to create a poppy that could be projection from the lighting bar above the stage. This is what she came up with:

poppy projection

With this image I would like to put it in the centre of stage as an end piece during the last song in the performance.
