Italian lighting manufacturer Clay Paky have donated intelligent lighting fixtures to the BA (Hons) Lighting Design programme at Rose Bruford College.
Clay Paky continue to support the UK lighting industry both with their Alpha range of professional lighting fixtures and with their sponsorship of the “Knights of Illumination” Lighting Design Awards which will be held this second year to coincide with PLASA in London.
The fixtures – four 1200 Stage Zoom and six Golden Scan units – will be added to the programme’s teaching and production stock of generic and intelligent luminaires. Rose Bruford College’s BA in Lighting Design, together with the new BA in Lighting Programming, are among the UK’s leading specialist lighting degree programmes, and students are taught in a wide variety of lighting applications, from live performance to architectural and event lighting.
“…The Clay Paky units will be of invaluable use to us, both on teaching seminars and production work, and my students are already using them on several shows this term, as well as learning new skills in moving light control in our lighting labs…”
(Hansjörg Schmidt, Programme Director, Lighting Design).
