Chris Shute

I'm a London based lighting programmer and designer.

I've worked in the theatre and live events industry

for 7 years, and currently study

Creative Lighting Control at Rose Bruford College.

Rose Bruford College
Programming Project
As part of my second year programming module,
I had the task of programming a dance number in a virtual Strictly Come Dancing studio.
Tasked with designing the rig, lighting and the accompanying paperwork.

I opted  to stay as true to real life as possible, with similar fixtures and placement.

Thornden Hall

Due to structual damage in our normal venue, we undertook the mammoth task of transforming the neighbouring sports hall into a 430 seat theatre.

Using 7 chain-hoisted trusses we created an overhead rig with procenium arch. The rig consisted of Mac Vipers, Mac 700 Profiles and Washes, ETC Colorsource Spots and ETC Source Four Cycs.

Paired with 430 tiered seats, the sports hall was unrecognisable and entirely transformed.
