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.

  • 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
