If All the World's a Stage, I Want Better Lighting

Hello and welcome to my blog. Here you’ll find information and perspective on the entertainment lighting industry. This is a quickly evolving field. The changes are exciting but it’s sometimes diffiuclt to figure out what they mean and how they translate into real world application. So we’ll figure it all out together.

My name is KC Wilkerson and I’m a lighting designer based in southern California. I work primarily in the themed entertainment sector, but I’ve lit countless shows, special events, premieres, concerts, parades and parties over the last 15 years. I’m employed by a large entertainment company but free-lance as much as possible in order to exercise different sets of creative muscles.

I love what I do. It’s been my passion since I saw The Police on the Synchronicity Tour in 1983, where I saw lights move and change color for the first time. It was at that moment that I decided what I wanted to be when I grew up.

The industry has changed significantly since then and continues to do so. I, for one, can’t wait to see what happens next.
