Paul Collison’s MA Lighting Seminar Attracts Lighting Designers and Operators From Theatre, Rental & SI Market



To understand more about professional lighting, MA Lighting in association with Hi-Tech Audio Systems has recently organized 3-day seminar about lighting design and programming in New Delhi from 3rd-5th October 2019. Australia’s leading visual designer –Paul Collison, conducted the seminar.

Mr. Collison is the founder of Sydney-based design firm eleven DESIGN. With more than twenty years of local and international experience, he has an impressive list of skills that include large-scale lighting design, motion graphic design and production design. Paul brings a keen eye for visual enhancement to every project. Since setting up eleven DESIGN in 2006, he’s been a designer on various shows including ‘The X Factor Australia and New Zealand’, ‘World’s Got Talent’, ‘Asia’s Got Talent’ ‘, ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides, Olympic and Commonwealth Games Ceremonies and a variety of many other TV events.



The seminar covered a broad sphere of lighting topics that included 3D visualization for demo and presentation, management of a MA Network, approach to lighting programming, pre-programming, advantages of multi-user programming etc. The seminar attendees comprised mostly of veteran as well as young aspiring lighting professionals who are well aware about MA Lighting.

“I had such a great experience with the team from Hi-Tech Systems and the seminar attendees. I was impressed with the skill level of everyone involved and the discussions that took place during all three days. I feel, it was a truly rewarding experience for everyone. I look forward to more seminars in India and spreading knowledge about the fantastic lighting control system - grandMA and about lighting design in general”, shares Paul Collison.



Franco Zaghini, Director of Business Development, MA Lighting said, “I have been extremely excited to attend this first Seminar organized by MA and Hi-Tech along with my colleagues Luke and Vijay. From my knowledge, nobody has organized such an event before and we were honored to have Paul Collison with us. He is a Lighting Designer of great knowledge and always sharing small details from his experiences. I was so happy to see so many lighting designers and operators from theatre, rental & system integration market segments.”

He further adds, “Luke Chikkala our trainer shared the beta status updates of the grandMA3 software with the participants, giving them a glimpse of what can be expected from the software version 1.0, informing audiences about the kind of tools the new platform is offering them. We feel, we have opened a new frontier in the India Lighting Industry and Indian market needs these kind of seminars. The engagement along with Hi-Tech Audio is to keep bringing to the market these kind of training and education sessions. Networking Training will be next on schedule, since the interest for this topic is growing and Networking is becoming a fundamental part of the Lighting System. Also on the horizon is the grandMA3 software training, on the back of the near future launch of grandMA3 software. Our plans along with Hi-Tech Audio are to give regular trainings so that anyone can start operating the new software.”



“The workshop has gathered young lighting designers from theatre, rental & system integration market segments”, shares Luke Chikkala. “One of the many interesting topics was about Eurovision Song Contest where Paul explained his journey in detail, from the first call he received from the Production Managers until the final day. The beta status updates of the grandMA3 software have been shared with the participants, giving them a glimpse of what can be expected from the software version 1.0. Majority of questions were about the various process involved in handling a show, something that Paul was very happy to discuss and share from his decades of experience in the industry. With the growing interest in networking and systems, we feel the need for organizing a Networking Training in India along with our distributor, Hi-Tech Audio Systems.”

“It was incredible to see so many attendees turning up for the seminar in New Delhi”, said Rajan Gupta, Managing Director of Hi-Tech Audio Systems. “I must say that Paul Collison is very engaging and he enlightened the attendees with his knowledge about lighting design and work flow of grandMA. This seminar was also very helpful for our in-house lighting technical team. We are immensely thankful to Franco, Luke, Vijay and the entire MA team who supported us in every step to organize this seminar.”

To add more about the seminar, Kakkaroda Ajay Teja, MA Technical support & trainer shares, “It was a great pleasure to welcome Paul Collison to the MA seminar. This seminar guided the participants through the starting phases of big-scale productions. From methods of presenting an idea to client, management of time to approaching the final lighting design, Paul has shared his vast knowledge with all. Finally a big shout-out to Hi-Tech Audio Systems for organizing this amazing and motivating seminar in India.”
