Lighting Designer / Projection Support

Fit to Burst and Upstart Theatre seek a lighting designer for their show Last Night I Met You Dreaming at Ovalhouse.

Last Night I Met You Dreaming is a visual show that combines text, movement, music, animation and projection mapping. We are therefore looking for someone with experience of working with projection mapping who will set-up and test our projection sequences with the director and design lighting that is sympathetic to the projection mapping.

  • Designing the lighting for the show in collaboration with the director
  • Attending the projection testing week and contributing to the research and development of ideas for projection and lighting
  • Rigging the lights
  • Rigging and derigging the projector and projection screen as necessary
  • Problem solving and making adjustments to projection sequences in Resolume in response to workshopping in testing week with director
  • Mapping projections onto set for projection sequences with director (sequences will be set-up in Resolume but will need refining in the get-in with the real objects)
  • Mark-up of set positions for projections with director
