Lighting Design

Aaron Rose Writes; In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.  Lighting design is the art of finding that right light and using it at exactly the right time to make a performance extraordinary. It is using light to evoke emotion, and draw people into the overall experience.

Stage Management

As a Production Stage Manager with iLuminate I had the privilege of leading 12 -16 of the best technicians, and performers around the world on the technological marvel that is The Artist of Light. The people, the technology, and the shows were all one of a kind, and full of excitement and unforeseen challenges. The highest adrenaline, and also the most stressful shows of my life were had while working with iLuminate, and it crafted my management style to this day.

 

Photography, and Video Production

More then just taking a picture, or making a film its capturing the emotion of the moment. Why is it a picture is worth a thousand words? Its because when you look at that photo or watch that video it transports you to that moment. You feel the emotion that is embedded in every frame.
