Last week the drama department were lucky enough to welcome award-winning lighting designer Neil Austin for a remote Q&A. Thea, V, discusses the event:
On Wednesday evening, all the drama students had the pleasure of attending a talk by Neil Austin, an award winning lighting designer. The talk followed the structure of a Q&A between Austin and Mr Wakerell, some studies and explanations of Austin’s own work on several different productions, and audience questions where he offered some advice. The talk was an amazing opportunity for drama students, especially for myself as I am currently doing my ‘Play in Production’ and have minimal knowledge of lighting design. It was also a good chance to learn a little about the ins and outs of the theatre industry.
