This year’s BAAM performance was one to remember. Kevin Lawson, Assistant Professor of Lighting Design and Technology and Emmy-Nominated Lighting Designer, hosted the event giving insights into each student’s educational background and personal fun “facts” – he may have used his imagination for students who did not respond to his email. Performances consisted of lighting designs synced to a broad range of music genres including Hip-Hop, Dubstep, and Alternative Rock.
“VLS has enjoyed a long, mutually beneficial relationship with CCM,” says Adam Hayward, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for VLS. “Many VLS employees attended the program throughout the years, including Paul Vincent, and we extend the opportunity to current students to work on shows and productions with our team yearly. We were honored to help support BAAM, by providing additional technology and equipment that the University may not have access to. The pieces that these young designers produce each year with this gear are awe-inspiring and give us a preview of the extreme talents these upcoming designers and students have.”
