Angstrom Lighting announced that it will be launching Angstrom University beginning June 4, 2005.

The programs will be held at Angstrom Lighting in Hollywood, CA and will include both beginning and advanced-level courses throughout the summer. In addition to theatrical and dance lighting design, there will also be classes in such diverse areas as architectural lighting design, Whole Hog and Express programming, introduction to live audio, intellectual property law, and more. Instructors will be some of the industry’s greatest luminaries.

Angstrom University will be the culmination of months of preparation and organization. “We could not be happier with the response we’ve received from both our instructors and our prospective students,” says Frans Klinkenberg, owner and CEO of Angstrom Lighting. “Everyone is very excited about the project. It’s something we’ve always wanted to do, and we are thrilled to be offering this opportunity to students and industry professionals alike.”

The Angstrom Lighting premises will provide an interesting variety of classroom settings. Some instructors will opt for the demo room and a close-up, hands-on experience, while others will set the stage in one of the unique warehouse environments.

“The fact that our instructors jumped at this opportunity is a testament to how passionate and dedicated they are to preserving art and entertainment in Los Angeles and around the world," Klinkenberg adds. "They are being generous with their time, not only to share their expertise but to perpetuate excellence in our industry.”
