Elation Sponsoring Seminar By Renowned LD Jonathan Smeeton

Legendary LD to hold “Lighting Design and its Application for the Stage” seminar May 13th in Los Angeles

Elation Professional is pleased to announce it is sponsoring a free presentation by renowned lighting designer Jonathan Smeeton aimed at university level and other aspiring lighting designers. The instructional seminar, titled “Lighting Design and its Application for the Stage,” will be held May 13th at Elation’s Los Angeles headquarters.

The seminar, the second Elation-sponsored seminar by Jonathan Smeeton following last year’s “Concert Lighting” seminar at Sound Check in Mexico City, is part of the Elation Educational Experience (E3) program. E3 is a continuing commitment by Elation Professional to give back to the industry through a series of educational events that brings design methodologies, new technology and real world practice to young designers. 

Few lighting designers in the industry command more respect or have more experience in working with top names in entertainment than Jonathan Smeeton. His catalog of design work spans four decades and includes acclaimed designs for Peter Gabriel, Diana Ross, Journey, Phil Collins, 3 Doors Down, Taylor Swift and many more too numerous to mention.

 “We are extremely excited to again have Jonathan Smeeton host a lighting design seminar for us,” said Eric Loader, Director of Sales for Elation Professional. “This is a unique opportunity for up-and-coming LDs to gain first-hand knowledge and personal insight from one of the lighting industry’s giants. The educational value he brings and real world experience he possesses from working alongside entertainment legends is unparalleled.”

During the seminar, Smeeton will draw on his extensive industry knowledge to present an overview of the history of entertainment lighting and will examine modern vs. traditional technologies and techniques.  Attendees will also gain insight into the lighting and stage design process and its realities using three anecdotal examples taken from his extensive list of references. This one-of-a-kind seminar will be a great asset to any lighting designer’s career.

The full-day presentation will take place on May 13th at the Elation headquarters in Los Angeles. The seminar is being offered free of charge but registration is required and space is limited. To register, please visit www.elationlighting.com/Events.aspx
