This course supports the aesthetics of lighting as a visual art, students analyze theater, concert, and film/video scripts for lighting requirements and develop a workable design concept. Students then generate complete lighting paperwork common to the job of an assistant lighting designer. Requires use of CAD (Vectorworks) software to develop renders. Students should be able to develop sophisticated responses to a set’s architectural problems and a common stage for live performances.


OER created through the NYCCT OER Faculty Fellowship.

OERs at NYCCT are housed on the City Tech OpenLab, a dynamic platform that allows faculty to easily update their course and related materials. As faculty teach with their OERs, they may revise them. We recommend consulting the full OER at: ENT4450 Lighting Design.
