To learn more about LIGHTBOX, request a free informational kit. We will put in the mail a 15 min DVD detailing LIGHTBOX with interviews of directors and designers; a CDROM or hardcopy of our first catalog (incl PDFs); our successful grant narrative which is raising funds around the world supporting this idea; our current price list.
LIGHTBOX was conceived by a scenic and lighting designer. After being a student of lighting design, and then working with theatres and lighting studios in New York and London, he was struck by the fact that when creating a space:
· A scenic designer can build a scale model of the scenic elements in order to preview and improve them
· A costume designer can sketch the costumes and touch the fabric
· A sound designer has the CD player
…but there has never existed a way for the lighting designer to work along the same timeline and contribute to the design process while designing the lighting.
The existence of LIGHTBOX bridges this gap, bringing the light into the same time frame and level of progression as the rest of the elements. Once this realization occurred, it was an easy step to see all of the applications beyond the theatre where this could be relevant and useful.
"Having seen and played with LIGHTBOX, you wonder why this hasn't come up before…It's the perfect tool for every theatrical designer and director…The ability to experiment and create has never been more intuitive. This creation of Charles' allows me, as a designer, to talk to a director as we are trained to - with light."
-- Bobby Harrell, professional Lighting Designer
