    Industry Awards

    "The colourful theme is continued with a strong lighting design from Adam Murdoch" -www.thepublicreviews.com/shout-the-mod-musical-c-too-edinburgh/

    About me

    I am a graduate from LIPA ( Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) with a BA Honours degree in Theatre & Performance Technology from 2015.

    I am a freelance Lighting Designer & Technician, with the ability to competently programme & re-programme on ETC EOS Family, WholeHog Consoles & Avolites Titan & Chamsys.

    I have experience of working on Plays, Musicals, Dance, Puppetry, Pantomime, Music Performances and designs within the Corporate sector.

    I am interested in working on a variety of different productions and enjoy the exciting challenges that each different one brings! I am great at thinking on my feet and working at a high speed, Fringe & 1 Day touring productions have all taught me this essential skill!

    I won the ALD Michael Northen award for work on previous productions and I continue to work upon fresh and new ideas for each design. Over the past 12 months I have designed lighting over 21 different productions all throughout the UK.

    Professional Recommendations

    Adam Cookson Production Assistant

    I have worked with Adam on a few occasions and have always found him to be a true professional, working hard to achieve a great finish and never cutting corners.

    Mark McMillan Sound Engineer

    Adam was fantastic in light design and operation, demonstating great attention to detail. He also made himself availible, problem solving in other areas in order to insure the show went smoothly.It was a pleasure working with Adam. He made the whole process easy.
