Lighting design - Ben Shaw - Bluebottle
This was one of the jobs that I had whilst working at Bluebottle (Melbourne). I was trusted with the stage lighting designs for all of the stages at Womadelaide, a highly patronised world music festival in Adelaide, from 2010 through to 2012. This involved managing six stages ranging from 2m x 2m to the impressive Adelaide Festival sound shell. Design, specification and plotting onsite were the predominant aspects of my brief, managing a cohesive lighting design and the operators to achieve this across the Womadelaide site, being the aim. It is a wonderfully rich job and a challenge to build cohesion amongst the difference of so many artists, sounds and countries of origin.
