Lighting Designer *suitable for home teaching*

Will Wagner is a lighting software designer. This Department for Education clip illustrates the major role that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects play in the creative industries. Will designs the lighting for concerts, plays, films, pop videos and other entertainment events. He first became interested in lighting design while creating lighting for school theatre productions. Will describes the need for a good grounding in physics and mathematics to do his job. "I use my maths to make sure I can do good design of the lighting systems, and I need my physics so that I correctly understand how it works in the real world. Without the technical work we do, life would be much more boring to look at.''
