After a long career in Live Entertainment Lighting I decided to add Filmmaking to my skill set. An obvious way of combining the two would be to become a Lighting Cameraman.
However, I’d like to make my future wider than that and in due course I’d like to do some teaching at university level, while also keeping current by making more experimental short films. But the main area of interest that has evolved is ‘Making Of’ or ‘Fly on the Wall’ films – being forms of educational documentaries.
Having experience in helping create many types of shows in many countries – and lighting is very much about looking – should be an advantage in making films about the often difficult process of creating shows. In an era of easy digital fakery these films would show the dedication, teamwork and artistry required to create a new piece of Live entertainment.
