Course Testimonials

Donald Holder

Broadway Lighting Designer

I always knew wysiwyg was a powerful and versatile platform, but I now have a much deeper understanding about what's really possible to create using the software.

Chris Yeomans

Lighting Director at MIRRAD

This course covered a great amount of content which were all very useful.

Malcolm Glanville

Theatre Technical Consultant and Contractor

I have been using wysiwyg for many years and it is possible to get into inefficient lazy procedures. I feel that this course has sharpened up my approach to new projects.

John Taylor

Strategic Consultant at Dirt Empire

I learned about shortcuts that would not otherwise be intuitive.

Shawn Fife

Owner, Stage Masters LLC

I've used wysiwyg for years but not to it's full capability by any right now my brain is on overload (in a good way). I feel everything was covered very well.
