We have about three methods out there in the entertainment lighting industry for lighting designers to be showcased. One of those yearly methods is the PLSN Parnelli Awards — it’s like the Oscars for the production industry!
This year, I think we should nominate one of the best LDs for the best bands out there with the best set of production: Jefferson Waful, Umphrey’s McGee, and ECTO Productions, who supplies UM’s tour kit. This is my opinion, of course — but if you share this opinion, let’s get Jeff and UM on the bill for one of the best events in the industry to showcase some true talent in this business.
Here’s a look at the form you’ll want to fill out:
