Light Talk with The Lumen Brothers

LIGHT TALK is a place where lighting designers can feel free to express what really annoys them about the industry, lighting education, and the art of stage lighting design. Inspired by the beloved NPR radio show, "CAR TALK", LIGHT TALK features the musings and rantings of David Jacques, Stan Kaye, and Steve Woods. These three designers have been lighting the stages of the world for many, many decades. Burnt out and abused by the industry and the insanity of the profession, Stan, Steve, and David have escaped to the hallowed halls of academia where they wildly and fearlessly pontificate to innocent students of the art. LIGHT TALK takes these rantings to the world. Look for our weekly Pod Cast discussing the issues of our time. Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and very little makes sense. Welcome to LIGHT TALK!

In this episode of LIGHT TALK, the Lumen Brothers talk about everything from Overworked Designers to Understanding What The Stakes Are. Join Steve, David, and Stan as they pontificate about: Going back to school; fader based consoles; worship space control options; fast faders in emergency situations; quick programming techniques; students who show up late and miss deadlines; staying one step ahead of the designer; the "Perfect Storm of Guilt"; Naoki; people notice; apps for Gel inventory; VaporWorks; why lighting designers are sometimes expected to also be Master Electricians; making sure your contract specifies your scope of work; the differences between acting and focus areas. 

Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and Very Little Makes Sense.
