In my role as a Lighting Director at STORY Nightclub, a vibrant and renowned venue on Miami Beach, I undertook a wide array of responsibilities to produce an electrifying visual experience for our guests.
About The Show
The goal is always to have a show that appears preprogrammed. However, one of the most demanding aspects of my role was operating the lighting live, often without prior knowledge of set lists or performance details (while mixing audio). This required exceptional adaptability and quick decision-making skills. By improvising and busking with the lighting cues in real-time, I elevated the energy and mood of the performances, creating dynamic and visually stunning moments that engaged the audience. Programming and maintaining my unique showfile (GrandMA2) gave me flexible control over the lighting, automation, and special effects such as cryogenics and confetti. Each show consists of headlining performers & hosts, dancers, aerialists, special acts, and more. Collaborating closely with the VJ, I ensured that the visual elements seamlessly integrated with the lighting design.
In addition to lighting, I also took charge of preparing the audio equipment for the DJs and headlining performers. This involved ensuring that all the necessary audio gear was properly set up, calibrated, and ready for use. Furthermore, I handled the sound mixing, making sure that the audio levels were balanced and optimized to deliver a high-quality auditory experience to the club's patrons.
