The Art of Programming: Lighting Consoles

The lighting world is back and it’s time to shake off that rust! At LDI2021, lighting designer and programmer Luther Frank continues the tradition of Brad Schiller and Vickie Claiborne’s classic seminar, providing a diverse panel of experts from across the industry. A primer for all things programming, these sessions are your essential core training at LDI and the perfect follow-up to the hands-on lighting console training earlier in the week. Additionally, Sovereign Candle Collective is expanding the fun with two days at the Live Programming Summit (see LDInstitute), bringing the lessons of the seminar into a hands-on, energetic experience. VIEW COURSES IN THIS TRACK
