Light has its grammar

Lighting is an important aspect of show genre. It has its own grammar in the kind of effects and impacts it makes on a performance. Colin takes an elective on lighting, and he has to read a play and propose the lighting scope and sequences to convey the intended impact of the play as he interprets it. Much like writing a curriculum; you decide which topic you want to shed light on, and which areas you want to bring into sharp focus and those you wish to blur, and the different kinds of light you wish to portray to express your take of the topic.
