If you are a lighting designer and you arrived on this page, it means that you like to explore.
I come from the world of Lighting Design. I worked in concerts, fashion shows and museum installations. Both as a designer and as a “worker”.
Some of KU’s current fans have been in the past my masters of light. I’ve been working for them setting up light bulbs in museums and now they work with me designing video projections in museums.
I am convinced that you, Lighting Designer, are in the category of users that can bring out the maximum from KU. Your sensitivity in understanding the light and the emotions it can deliver is higher than that of those who come from the video industry.
I do not want to belittle anyone, but the work of a Lighting Designer is exciting. He does it with colors, he does it with rhythm and movement. All extremely limited tools than video. The Lighting Designer has always been able to make a very limited use of images.The best he has been able to use so far are either the static gobo projectors or complex and expensive video projectors mounted on the forks of a motorised stage light. Simply not practical.
With KU things are a lot simpler. If you are a good Lighting Designer you are used to being surrounded by collaborators. Thanks to KU you just have to find someone good with After Effects and you can, with a shocking simplicity, create light effects never seen before.
Think about the lighting of a shop window. Until yesterday you were considering the lighting fixtures available positions, you were putting them on the least worst spot and you ensured that the displayed product was enhanced in the best way.
Today you have an extra tool. Imagine a delicate and extremely controllable moving light. That it can be blend with the light up objects.
Simple and long lasting installations thanks to KU and LED projectors, which will give you an extra gear with your customers.
