In this course, we will explore the two most commonly used software programs used in today’s lighting design process. This course will take you through step by step how to use each tool in both Vectorworks and Lightwright. Starting with Vectorworks, you will learn first and foremost how to use the software as a drafting tool and then as a lighting design tool. You will develop the necessary skills to draw technical drawings in 2D space, produce a light plot (Ground Plan, Section View, Details, etc.), produce all relevant paperwork (Magic Sheet, Channel Hookup, Shop Order, etc.). On top of this we will cover the differences and similarities between theatre, corporate and concert design. Please keep in mind that this course does not fulfill any college requirements, nor does it give credit towards a degree.
