“As in previous years, we’re looking to discover the next lighting design talent through previsualization, but this year’s participants will be challenged by having a “budget” just like they would in a real world project. This “budget” will be represented by an equipment limitation list,” explains, Igor Silva, marketing manager at CAST Group.
“Entrants can be pros or amateurs – all you need to do is be a registered wysiwyg Member, follow the equipment limitation list and guidelines, create a 2-minute video of your lighting design using wysiwyg version R33 then post it to your YouTube account and share it on CAST’s Facebook page. That’s the challenge!”
The best three entries will be handpicked by an expert panel of judges assessing entries on creativity in lighting rigs, programming and overall lighting design.
Winning entries will be showcased at the CAST Booth P10 at PLASA London on October 5th, 2014 then promoted online and in social media.
Additionally winners will take home:
1st place 1 year free wysiwyg membership
2nd place 9 month free wysiwyg membership
3rd place 6 month free wysiwyg membership
There will also be a People’s Choice award voted for on CAST Software’s Facebook page by industry peers, where the winner will receive a year’s wysiwyg membership or option to upgrade to ‘wysiwyg Perform’.
And the last word goes to Silva who says: “Show us what ‘Be Smart, Be Creative’ means to you!”
