Sept. 4 — Small But Effective: Getting The Most Out Of Your Rig

Limited budget bringing you down? Does your artist want the most impact from the show without having to book a huge space or rent a giant lighting rig? Of course, that’s the case, more often than not. Sometimes, these challenges make for the most creative outcomes. In “Small But Effective: Getting The Most Out Of Your Rig,” world-renowned programmer, designer, and trainer Marc Lorenz will present tips and tricks for you to get big—and more importantly, appropriate—looks from your smaller rigs, starting with console layout and focus, and working through the programming process to dress rehearsal.

Lighting designer Marc Lorenz

Marc Lorenz is a freelance operator, programmer, lighting director, and designer. As well as being hands-on at the front line of the production industry, he is a recognized trainer for lighting consoles and media-servers. He has more than 25 years’ experience with festivals, arena shows, tours, TV, and corporate events.

At the tender age of 18, he was already operating at well-known festivals such as Paleo Festival Nyon, Out in the Freen Frauenfeld, and the Open Air St. Gallen. The latter is where he met leading lighting designer Gunther Hecker, and since 1999 they have worked together on many projects, including groundbreaking tours for artists such as Die fantastischen Vier, Xavier Naidoo, and many more.

Lorenz became a successful programmer and operator in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. He is also a designer in his own right, having worked for many popular German artists as well as international brands. His creative talents are supplemented by his broad technical knowledge, and his ability to bring even the most ambitious creative ideas to life.

In 2015, he wrote a book with Roland Greil, Showlicht, vom Scribble zum fertigen Design.
