Join Ashley Simper, BlackTrax engineer for the ‘Walking With Dinosaurs’ European tour, as he walks you through the fundamentals of a BlackTrax system. How on earth do you motion-track extinct creatures? Lighting huge dinosaurs for maximum impact is not easy. Yet, lighting is what drives tension and awe. Whether it’s time to thrill the audience or amaze them, lighting plays a huge role and tracking is key to keeping lighting on-target, anytime, in real-time. In this webinar, Simper will explain the benefits of BlackTrax to productions, as well as how his transition from being a touring lighting technician to becoming a BlackTrax technician means there is no going back.
