LightingDesign0226The stars-of-tomorrow in CCM’s Lighting Design and Technology program will have the chance to shine brighter than ever this week thanks to the generosity of Vincent Lighting Systems.

Each year, students in CCM’s course on “Moving Light Programming” get an opportunity to show off their mastery of the art and science of lighting design in a dazzling class presentation entitled “BAMM!”

Students spend weeks planning for this capstone event and are then given only a few days to execute their plans, programming complex lighting on a rig of various fixtures – each with different attributes and abilities – in CCM’s versatile Cohen Family Studio Theater.

This year, long-time CCM supporter Vincent Lighting Systems has donated equipment to the event, allowing students to install and work with some of the most advanced gear available in the lighting industry.

This unique experience puts these students on the forefront of lighting education, reinforcing CCM’s reputation as the finest training program for lighting professionals in the country.

CCM’s faculty, staff and students would like to thank UC alumni Paul Vincent and Adam Hayward, along with the rest of the Vincent Lighting Team, for making this experience possible.

CCM Lighting Design and Technology presents BAMM! at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 16. This is an open class presentation, however seating is limited.
