»LightsOn!Director« is an application concept for multi-touch surfaces to set lights on stages in a new, redefined way. Especially created for directors and choreographers without technical qualifications the application makes possible to create unique stage lighting more intuitive and efficient.

— 2008/2009

For any kind of stage production lighting design plays an essential role as a part of the performance. Even in smaller theaters, the stage lighting is dominated by a high technical complexity, which can prevent an artistic-only approach. The gestures-controlled application »lights!Director« enables an easier and experimental way to design light compositions.
— Setting the first spotlight, with interface elements for choosing the color and intensity (left).

— Interface elements for color/intensity (based on a sphere) and shape/sharpness.
— Set scene with three different lights. A complete list of elements/lights (left column) and already created scenes (right column).

— Live preview of set lights based on a rendering.

— Interface for setting transitions between scenes.
— Readjusting a lightsource on the main screen,
and timeline with saved transitions between scenes at the bottom.
— An (unfortunately older) Keynote-presentation simulates the key features of the application.
Collaboration with Jonas Breme, Thomas Breme and Mathias Neumann.
