At 52, Bob Dickinson is at the top of his game. He is a go-to man for the lighting of live events on television, from awards shows (Grammys, Tonys, Oscars, etc.) to the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics (Atlanta, Athens, and Salt Lake City, to date). Ellen Lampert-Gréaux touches base with Dickinson just after this year's Academy Awards for his take on the current state of the art, from moving lights to projections.
