We're thrilled to announce the publication of a new Vectorworks training guide: Entertainment and Lighting Design with Vectorworks Spotlight, First Edition. The manual was written by Kevin Lee Allen, an award-winning lighting and scenic designer whose work includes theater, film, television, museums, and corporate environments.

This book explores the use of the Vectorworks Spotlight with Renderworks program for use in the entertainment industries. While the methods and techniques described are applicable to film, television, concerts, exhibits, and themed architecture or interiors, this tutorial focuses on a project that creates lights and a set for the stage, the root of entertainment design. The exercises in the tutorial will teach users the steps to create designs ranging from a simple 3D form to a Broadway-scale production of Romeo and Juliet.

“It is definitely going to be my course textbook for this semester because, despite my students having different needs than entertainment designers, it specifically lists the most important tools, commands, and workflows and talks a little about each one,” said Cris Dopher, Entertainment Designer and Instructor at FIT.

The book will be part of the prize package for this year's and Stage Directions Student Lighting Design Competition, sponsored by Nemetschek Vectorworks, City Theatrical and Field Template. Allen serves on the competition’s panel of judges.
