In this workshop, award-winning solo show performer, and lighting specialist for film and television, Charlie Petch, will take you through the principles of light, sound and script for online performance. Whether it is learning to light and sound better with what you have and dollar store solutions, or getting the gear you need to have an even more professional look, Charlie will show you tips and tricks and take you through the gear they use, and how you could set up a whole show that could have multiple lighting setups, and multimedia elements including projection and live music performance.
