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!

Today is a solemn day for the lighting world. A great tree has fallen. Fred Foster, founder and CEO of Electronic Theater Controls, has left us.

As we reflect on this tremendous loss to our community, we might think about the idea of leaving a place better than we found it. There is no question that Fred Foster left this world and the lighting community much much better then he found it.  We think that is quite special.  

So thank you Fred, for all you have done for your family, your friends, and the world of lighting.  It will never be the same because of you, and it will certainly be better because of you.

In the summer 2018, the Lumen Brothers were honored to interview Fred Foster live in Wisconsin. It’s only fitting that we replay this interview for you now, as we all reflect on a life well lived.
