Young LD Contest 2014

LD Contest 2014

I’m on a new contest for young Lighting Designers… Usually I don’t bother anyone with contests, but this one is really, really important!

The song I chose is “Nothing Left To Say”, from the famous portuguese singer Aurea, because it goes through some soft moments to a strong uprising feeling, so I tried to capture all the little details, trying to give an identity to each element. In the end, the VU-meter effect was created with a custom application I developed on purpose for controlling two Q-Blender CueLists directly from audio, in real-time (headphones recommended). I hope you enjoy watching as much as I did making it! :)
