Deploying Lightform for the First Time at the University of Alaska.
This is the first project created by Dave Klein for a Roaring 20's inspired dance, sponsored by the Student Activities Board at the University of Alaska Southeast UAS Recreation Center in Juneau. Dave lit the stage background using Lightform LFC. He learned a lot during the process, and overall the students seemed to enjoy the enhancement of their surroundings. Dave described the Lightform workflow as "simple but effective." We can't wait to see what he does for the next school dance.

Share your Lightform creations with us. Tag your videos to have your work spotlighted on Lightform social accounts.
