Shout out to our friends at Big Time Lighting Design

From time to time, we got to spread the word about other awesome companies that inspire us!  One of the best concerts I ever saw was the Black Keys at Hangout Fest in 2014.  The lights were so cool, all these old Par Cans, that created a super rock 'n roll look.  This look was designed by Eric Cathcart of Big Time Lighting Design!

Since then, we've had the great pleasure of collaborating with Eric Cathcart on a few projects around Nashville, TN, including our friend Luke Dick's band, Republican Hair.  Eric is an amazing designer for so many great bands!   Check out more of his amazing work with his company Big Time Lighting Design.

St. Thomas Hospital Goes Blue for Grand Re-Opening

Here's one way to make a statement to your guests, upon arrival.  We used a fleet of LED lights and gobo patterns to create a dramatic effect at St. Thomas in Nashville, TN.  They were unveiling a newly renovated surgery floor, and they made sure to show it off to doctors, in style.

How we did it, tip of the day:  A white Gobo pattern, over a blue LED wash, made for a great entrance, from a typically cement looking parking garage.

How do you create depth, dimension, cool shadowing, and make your wedding ceremony one-of-a-kind at a fantastic Nashville venue?  We collaborated with our long-time friend Angela Proffitt on an amazing event at Marathon Music Works in Nashville, TN.  

Pro Tip:  Use an Ellipsoidal Light from the back of the room.  This will allow you to shoot light over your guests' heads, with a shutter cut feature, but still have the cool shadow look on the wall, similar to a gobo pattern.

String Lights at Bloomsbury Farms

How can you use string lights as a center-piece feature for your tent?  Here was a wedding that featured string lighting in a clear tent at Bloomsbury Farms, for a job collaborated on with Jessica Sloane, an amazing event planner in Nashville, TN.

Uplighting in trees and hanging a chandelier in the pavilion rounded out this look.  

Tip:  make sure when you are putting that many lights in a tent, that you have the capability to dim all the lights, so it's just the right ambience...
