Hello, my name is Elliot and I am a lighting designer. I light lots of events such as Glastonbury Glade in 2014 and Beautiful Days from 2010 to now. I have my own company called Spiralstagelighting. My company has been noticed on total Production International magazine and BBC Radio Leeds and much more.
I started when I was seven years old and I got my first light as well then. In 2014, I opened my service. I got a company because I got bigger in the production industry, so I decided to have a lighting service. Hopefully, when my service gets bigger, I hope to get young people involved and help out do stage lighting.
I am supported by some of the biggest companies in the world such as Avolites, a billionaire lighting desk company and Chauvet, another billionaire lighting company. I recently met a very famous Canadian band called Nikelback. The reason why I met Nikelback is because I met the lighting designer of Nikelback and the sound people then, they told me that would you like to meet Nikelback so I said yes. When I met Nikelback, they were really kind people and also the rest of the production. Nikelback gave me an access all area pass and a VIP pass. Also another reason I met Nikelback is because I met the head of security at Sheffield Arena.
Also do something that you like, be a lighting person or own your own business like a shop. Get involved with things and if you get involved with a production company, you could meet someone famous.
