Apollo Design sponsors Stage Lighting Super Saturday 2018. Scott Parker says, "Apollo has been a supporter of Super Saturday since the start. Every year Apollo brings a new selection of terrific Gobos for our special effects and templates session."
Since its founding in 1992 by Joel and Keersten Nichols, Apollo Design Technology, Inc. has gained a worldwide position in the production and distribution of special effects products to the entertainment lighting industry. Establishing itself early as a leading producer of custom gobos, the company has expanded into other related products used by lighting designers to create stimulating visual effects for theater, corporate events, concerts, houses of worship, and architectural applications.
The 13th Annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday workshop, continuing its practical and hands-on educational presentations, will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts located at 721 Broadway in New York City. Super Saturday is produced by Scott Parker with the help of the NYU Tisch School.
Stage Lighting Super Saturday is a one-of-a-kind event held in New York City specifically designed to enhance, answer, and benefit the interests and abilities of all involved in the application of innovative stage, architectural, and entertainment lighting. To accomplish that goal, the intensive all day Stage Lighting Super Saturday Seminars are led by active members of the Theatrical Lighting community for the benefit of new, aspiring, and advancing stage and event designers. Emphasis is placed equally on inspiration, training, and technical application. Seminars focus on methods and equipment that can get the job done as originally visualized, and specific implementation of both new and established products to achieve the desired results.
Intensive subjects include Stage Lighting 101 for those new to the art; the use of conventional long established luminaires; the latest LED, and traditional Incandescent and Arc Source instruments; the implementation of color, special effects, mood and scene lighting; and choosing among the myriad of helpful mechanical implements such as consoles, moving lights, computers, and many others.
Approximately 20 technical specialists, as well as manufacturers of superior equipment, will demonstrate techniques and newly available cost-effective products. Among the present and past manufacturing contributors, all noted for their lighting expertise and practical implementation, are such stalwarts as A.C. Lighting, Altman, Apollo, Barbizon, Big Apple Lights, Canto USA, Chauvet, City Theatrical, Dove Systems, Elation, ENTTEC, ESP, ETC, Field Template, GAM, GE Products, GLP, High End, Lee Filters, Lehigh Electric Products, LEX, Lighting&Sound America, Lite-trol, Lycian, Martin Pro, Nemetschek N.A., Ocean Optics/Sea Changer, Osram Sylvania, PHILIPS-Color Kinetics, Polaris Lighting, PRG, RC4 Wireless, Robe, Robert Juliat, Rosco, Shadowstone, Selecon, Strand Lighting, Strong, TMB, Tribeca Lighting, and Wybron.
