Lead Lighting Artist

Lighting is an important element in the creation of a game’s look and feel. An environment is not complete without the mood that is set by shadowy dark corners or bright rays across a vast landscape.

Set Wireman

Not everything you see on screen is a trick; sometimes flipping a switch to turn on a light is just that simple. Just like an electrician wires a house, film and television sets can include practical wiring. Practical set wiring refers to any electrical apparatus seen on-camera that is actually used, like a table lamp that turns on or a working blender. All power being delivered to the production facilities—for example, to the costume trailer or craft services area—also falls under the domain of practical wiring.
