tlp-2021-announcementThis year’s SLX Lighting Programme students
UK - The Lighting Programme, an opportunity for graduate lighting designers and technicians, has announced the participants of its 2021/22 edition.
The programme is run by SLX, a lighting and production company based in Bristol. It aims to foster young, upcoming talent within the industry - especially important in the post-Covid era, where many are struggling to recruit.
This year, five students were selected instead of the initial offer of four places, due to the exceptionally high standard of applications.
The five students all graduate next year, and will gain experience working a number of jobs at venues around the UK, the first of which is a fit-up inside the London Palladium. They will also be introduced by SLX to key industry figures at events such as PLASA/ABTT London, as well as having access to equipment for use on their course projects.
The five students selected this year are Alexander Hannah - Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, Jessica Brigham - Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, Oliver McNally - The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Guy Knox-Holmes - Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Ciaran Lillis - Guildford School of Acting.
SLX CEO Alastair Currie commented: “The Lighting Programme is an excellent initiative for us to engage with students from a diverse range of backgrounds and colleges. I am delighted that we are in a position to offer this support to aspiring young people as they start their journey in our wonderful and creative industry. I very much look forward to meeting the students over the coming months.”
Jessica Brigham, from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, said she was excited to be selected: “I'm most excited to meet everyone at SLX and learn from them, including the other students who have a place in the programme.”
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Oliver McNally added: “I am most looking forward to the networking opportunities that I can gain, which will prepare me for graduation and give me opportunities for employment.”
