Lately I’ve been thinking about how to add more production value to my show. One way that I know that my show is lacking is in lighting. Unfortunately I know nothing about theatrical lighting. Last night I worked in a theater and asked the lighting guy for some notes.
His main thing was that I should light by bubble act from below as well as above. It’s make them “pop” visually more to the audience that is seated below me. That’s great advice, and next time I’m going to add that to my show.
The point is, if you don’t know how to do something, ask someone who does. Don’t just ignore it. If by asking someone for help makes my show 1% better, it’s totally worth it!
