Lighting Programming Summit: CueMe and Battle Of The Busk - Day 1

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This two-day seminar and workshop covers live lighting programming across multiple industry-leading consoles. Experts will provide hands-on demonstrations of their skills, methods, and insights into their programming language of choice. They will also share career-building and networking advice to those new at navigating this highly in-demand field. New programmers should be ready with their best questions and ideas and potentially be ready to show off their skills in front of their peers. Experienced designers and programmers are encouraged to participate as well and come meet the up-and-coming talent from across the industry.

Day 1: Battle of the Busk

Required materials: Personal show file for console of choice.

For those who didn’t catch Battle of the Busk in 2021, it’s bigger and better than ever before!

Buskers representing the best of the best in our industry will compete for bragging rights in this friendly competition. Each one will be running a different console controlling the same main rig. These buskers will show us their stuff while a live DJ performs a set from the main stage! For those who came last year, the Battle of the Busk’s trademarked spectacle will be cranked even higher.

Once the buskers are all done, we’ll have a brief fireside chat where the buskers will all discuss their show and consoles of choice. You’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions in a live Q&A.

After our chat, attendees will have the opportunity to get on a console of their choice and play with the whole rig! You’ll get a chance to meet with the programmers and the participating manufacturers to discuss the consoles, show files, careers, or anything you’d like.

Day 2: Cue4Me
Live participants will be chose first-come, first-served followed by a waitlist. Approximately 15 will be chosen.
Required materials: Personal show file for console of choice.

Come put your programming knowledge to the test under the direction of industry-leading designers. Using the same lighting rig and console options from the day prior, participants will have the opportunity to work live with a designer: taking direction, building looks, and openly sharing strategies and methods for working out in the field. Professionals from all segments of our industry- theatre, film, and live music - will all be present to offer their unique perspectives on programming workflow and philosophy.

As an audience member, you will have a bird’s eye view of the actual programming, as well as a live audio feed of the conversation between designer and programmer. This session will provide perspective into the working relationships shared out in the field, as well as technical tricks and tips from the best to help develop your own programming skills. After the session has ended, attendees are invited to stay and continue their shared education on the consoles of their choice, meet the designers and programmers who participated, and have fun with the now free-to-use lighting rig until LDI doors close.
