International speaker James Simpson joins ENTECH CONNECT 2012.

Fresh from PLASA Focus in Leeds, exciting international speaker James Simpson joins ENTECH CONNECT 2012. As part of its agreement with PLASA, ENTECH CONNECT is able to access some of the most innovative and inspirational international industry speakers from around the world. James Simpson is the Lighting Visualiser at the Royal Opera House, London. Lighting Visualisation plays a huge role in the creative process, giving lighting designers and the production team a chance to work on their productions in a virtual environment before going to stage. Since James took on the role he has developed it to be more than just a lighting tool, but a system that every department in the company can use, including some that you would not expect such as box office, camera operators and automation. James will be presenting the opening keynote at ENTECH CONNECT in Melbourne, titled, Lighting Visualisation at The Royal Opera House, Smart Design in 3D Theatre. The session is targeted at lighting designers, lighting programmers, production managers and generally anyone interested in the future of visualisation and how it could work for their production or business. “Lighting visualisation software is developing fast, and whilst the profession is using it more than ever, you may still be surprised to learn how much more can be done. At the Royal Opera House, lighting visualisation is being used to join together lighting design to other technical aspects of the production, saving valuable time and money,” commented James Simpson, who runs the visualisation suite at the ROH. “My presentation discusses the concept of visualisation and the role it plays in productions, including when the Royal Ballet took Romeo and Juliet to the O2 Arena. I am very excited to have the opportunity to participate in the program at ENTECH CONNECT, and looking forward to discussing my specialty with interested industry members in Australia.”
