We don't usually show what happens behind-the-scenes, so here's a rare look at what's happening off camera when we film a class... with all of our ugly cables and equipment showing!
Creating and programming dynamic lighting scenes that are syncopated with music is an incredibly time consuming process (but it's also super fun 😍) The monitor on the right is displaying our lighting cues along a timeline with syncopated music. The smaller computer on the left is used to monitor and record the instructor's dialogue through a "DAW" (a digital audio workstation.) This audio will later get mixed with the music for clear and compelling instruction that won't come at the expense of the music.
This picture alone contains over 480 feet of DMX cable and 137 individually addressable LED fixtures and special effects 😅 the goal is to make all of the equipment "blend in" and work *with* the set. I'm really proud of this set design... also we basically cheated by using Nanoleaf panels 😆 paper thin and modular LED panels make lighting design too easy.
