Lighting Chaos

With the construction done, it’s time to light the set! Lincoln Morrison handled the stage lighting design and, as you’ll see, he did a great job. The above is the initial chaos.

Finished Lighting

Lincoln approached the lighting from a noir perspective and had some great ideas. The projected cathedral windows make the room look really big and the added color to the windows and projected blinds adds to that noir feel. It really turned out sharp — turn on the stage lights and we’re ready to film. Here’s a few more angles of the room.

Lots of people had input and contributed to this design and they all deserve a big thank you — Jimmy O’Banion, Stephen Gerding, Remy Minnick, Scott and his crew at Pulp Art Surfaces, Keith Sherman, Jimmy at LED Wholesalers, Edd (correctly spelled) at Blue Ribbon Carepting, Liz Brunwin, Lincoln Morrison and everyone who worked in the office throughout the construction!

I hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes tour of the CBR Speakeasy!
