Three trends worthy of attention in stage lighting
Grasping the new trend of stage lighting development is one of the required courses for stage lighting technicians. Only by correctly and accurately grasping the new development trends can we make the stage lighting better and more satisfactory.
So, what are the necessary contents of the new development trend of stage lighting? According to the author's humble opinion, this new trend mainly has the following points.
First, the shift from singleness to diversification
One of the new trends in the development of stage lighting is the shift from singleness to diversification.
The previous stage lighting, often referred to as "stage lighting," has shown a distinct simplification. The future stage lighting has a diversified development trend.
The 21st century is a pluralistic era. The multipolarization of politics and the multilateralization of trade and economics on a global scale have determined the diversity of culture. The diversification of culture directly determines the diversity of stage lighting. The diversified development trend of stage lighting has now come into its own.
One is the combination of lighting and scenery, props, clothing, makeup and sound effects to form a diversified complex. Sometimes there is a "scene" and sometimes a "light effect". Lights are omnipresent and ubiquitous, and they become a positive factor in diversification. For example, when celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the “cube of light” during the parade and mass march was the trinity of lighting, scenery, and props.
The second is that the light itself consists of a single element of light, a complex of diversified elements that integrate sound, light, chemistry, and electricity. For example, strobe lights and voice-activated lights are all representative.
The third is the diversification of the stage lighting itself. Many stage performances on the same stage and on the same stage at different times use different lights to distinguish one from the other, and thus form a diversified stage lighting. Another example is the stage lighting of the TV Variety Show, “Transmutation”, which is divided into three different lighting areas to create three different stage environments: a modern urban night scene, a light of ten thousand lights and neon lights, and a dilapidated old lamp. Shows the historical memory; the visual collision of new and old lights alternately... and so on, too numerous to mention.
From this we can see that the shift from singleness to diversification has indeed become one of the new trends in the development of stage lighting.
Second, the transition from passive to dynamic
The second trend in the development of stage lighting is the transition from passive to dynamic.
In the past, stage lighting often overemphasized that the stage performance “created a sense of space and time in the stage environment, rendered the atmosphere of the stage, highlighted the central figures, and provided lighting effects (such as running clouds, rain, water waves, and lightning).” Service status. What's more, only emphasizes the role of lighting: “The other major task of stage lighting is stage general lighting during performances, so it is also called 'stage lighting'.”
The current stage lighting, in addition to the functions that have been used for stage performances in the past, places more emphasis on the active use of lights, emphasizing the creation and creativity of lights, thereby enabling stage lighting to deepen themes, create styles, and create brands. Wait for more and more artistic effects.
Motivation is the abbreviation of “subjective initiative”, also known as “self-conscious initiative”. It originally refers to the “activity of understanding the world and transforming the world that human beings exhibit in practice. It is the distinguishing feature of humans from animals. It includes the initiative and practice of understanding. Of the two aspects of initiative, the dynamism of practice is the most fundamental.” Here, borrowing this phrase, emphasizes the dynamic, creative, and pioneering nature of stage lighting.
In this respect, there are also many convincing examples. For example, in the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, their lights fully demonstrated their own dynamic characteristics. It makes people feel that only one can't think of it without light.
It can be seen from this that the transition from passive to dynamic is one of the new trends in the development of stage lighting.
Third, from static to dynamic changes
The third trend in the development of stage lighting is the shift from static to dynamic.
In the past, stage lights were often in a static state. Even if they changed slightly, they were only reflected in light, darkness, chroma, and position.
The current stage lighting, most of them are in a state of flexibility and change. On the stage, flying birds and colorful butterflies made from light are scattered around. Various light patterns made by lights are also intertwined and colorful. The dynamic effects of stage lighting can be seen everywhere. It can be said that the stage lighting itself constitutes a smart art world.
From this we can see that the transition from static to dynamic is one of the new trends in the development of stage lighting.
