NOTHING BEATS EXPERIENCE. OUR CREW IS WORLD-CLASS, WITH EXPERTISE BORNE OF DECADES IN THE BUSINESS.

Lighting Designer - Auckland

jason@oceaniaproductions.co.nz

We are very pleased to welcome Jason Steel and Lighting By Design to the fold. The gypsy life of a rock ‘n roll lighting operator lit a passion in Jason for the tools of his trade, so he invested in kit and formed his own company. Over the next five years, Lighting By Design grew steadily, servicing TV shows, sporting events, theatre and bands – anything to which Jason could apply his creativity and personal touch. The brand now operates under the Oceania umbrella, a positive partnership for all concerned.

Jason:

My career began before I knew it. Helping out with lights and sound on school productions and church events led to paid employment in theatres around Hamilton, but my interests soon outgrew the work available, so off I went touring, operating lights for various bands. I’d worked with Steriogram, Goodnight Nurse and 48 May by the time I’d turned 18.

Over the next few years I toured extensively both around New Zealand and abroad, gaining valuable experience, but 2009 was my milestone year. I bought my first console, a Hog 3, established my company, Lighting By Design, and worked with Evermore on their Truth of the World tour of Australia. By the time I came home, I was bitten by the gear bug well and truly. I was soon investing in LED fixtures, moving lights and the associated infrastructure to make it all work.

I recently joined Oceania and am thoroughly looking forward to the new adventures this will bring. My strengths are console operation and the integration of video with lighting, both for live shows and TV. I can visualise, design and implement large-scale events and greatly enjoy using my skills to ensure the correct atmosphere is achieved.

Outside work, my priority is spending time with my wife and young daughter, and I like to snowboard and jet ski.
