A Lighting Technician ensures film, television and stage productions have appropriate lighting. You might control the overall light during production or provide lighting features to suit particular scenes. Lighting technicians may operate equipment such as spotlights or floodlights or carry specialised equipment to settings outside of a stage or studio. You may need to monitor lighting during filming and make adjustments when required.
Lighting Technicians need to be focused and have good attention to detail. It’s important that you can work to a production schedule but also be flexible when required. You’ll be working as part of a larger production crew and will need to communicate and collaborate during production.
