For this project i was asked to design a light show to a theme song of my choice. I choose a shortened version of the Mission Impossible theme song. The song was only one minute long but it forced me to concentrate on making it as complex as i could in the short space of time. I spent a long time fine tuning the cues and effects so that they lined up with the music. I think I spent most of my time doing this because I couldn’t let the lighting slip out of time during such a short piece.
I started by listening to the song and watching the intro to the films. This helped me because it gave me some starting ideas which I could build on. I then listened to the song and wrote down the times of where I wanted the lighting to change, these would be my cues.
