Leisuretec inspired the industry’s future bright sparks with a training day on Zero 88’s FLX / S Lighting Consoles. The event took place at Leisuretec’s HQ in February 2019, offering a group of home-educated students aged 13-18 the unmissable opportunity to taste the world of entertainment and theatre lighting.
Zero 88’s FLX / S lighting desks provide a simple and intuitive solution perfect for applications where the user has little lighting knowledge but needs to operate their theatre, school stage, event or production. Each desk equipped with a visualiser, the group of young people learnt how to patch and set up their stage and how to use Chases, Groups, Cues, Playbacks, Colour Palettes and many other features to create an effective show with wash and intelligent lighting.
“We recognise the importance of bringing young people into the industry to help it grow for the future,” said Andy Friedli, Lighting Sales Specialist at Leisuretec. “From our experience, it is rare that young people get hands-on experience with professional lighting equipment, unsighted to the possible career opportunities our industry can behold. This is our second training event for young people and we get great satisfaction from giving them a gateway into our exciting world of entertainment.”
