A peerless event for Lighting Professionals
Lighting Designer
Patrick Woodroffe

Behind every concert and every TV show we see, behind every play of lights on the stage of a theater that leaves us admired, behind the effects of a skilful lighting of urban architecture or a space for the public, there is always a big deployment of sophisticated technologies. Not all shows, however, have the same ability to excite us, some are great and exciting, others are dull and monotonous.

What makes the difference is the lighting designer, the artist who uses light as a creative tool and plays with the rhythm of the music or the atmosphere of a theater piece. For the Lighting Designer, projectors are like the brushes for a painter and his art is to shape the light, adapting it to the needs of each show.

is one of the most famous Lighting Designer in the world since many years and shines with his art the most famous artists, the stars of the shows, on the stages of concerts, theaters and television studios.

In the conference “Lighting the Stars”, Patrick Woodroffe will tell us about some of his more exciting experiences: the lighting design for the OLYMPIC GAMES in London, and the case study for the MICHAEL JACKSON’S THIS IS IT – a fascinating story of the concert tour that was cancelled after Michael’s death but which lives on in the film of the same name.

The conference, the first of its kind in Sweden, is organized by INTERLITE in cooperation with WIRELESS SOLUTION and CLAY PAKY, the Italian manufacturer leader in the professional lighting industry.
