Steven Dykes, director and playwright
I am a London-based freelance video artist, lighting designer and technician. I specialise in the use of Lighting & Video technologies to create unique visual designs for live performance, installations and recorded media. I am trained in executing every step of the process: concept design, creation and animation of video content, integrating visual elements through technical systems and completing the necessary paperwork and plans. These skills have been developed over an extensive time working with a variety of clients.
I am efficient using a range of applications and have used them to create and present visual concepts and designs for several clients. I have an extensive knowledge of AutoCAD 2014 and Cast WYSIWYG R32 software to create 3D modeling. I have created video content on After Effects, Final Cut Pro X and animated content via Illustrator. I have also built many 3D plans and content using these programs.
I can efficitenly use a variety of media including Mbox, Catalyst, Green Hippo and QLab and a variety of lighting desks including the GrandMA 2, ETC Ion and Avolites desks. They have enabled me to collate my design elements for the live event or installation. I can quickly learn to use other devices to enable the show to reach its full potential.
