UK's TV & Film Lighting Experts Share Insight On New Podcast

News Image
A new podcast series which spotlights some of the UK's leading TV & Film lighting professionals has been launched.

The 'Lighting for Radio Podcast' developed by Version 2 will offer a glimpse into the lives of some of the industry's leading lighting experts as they share first-hand experiences and lessons on how they reached the top of their profession. 

The podcast was born out of a lockdown idea, with Version 2 Managing Director Nick Edwards explaining "this behind the scenes podcast series will give listeners and I hope in particular students' ideas for their future career paths".

Hosting every conversation is Broadcaster Nia Visser, whose career credits include work as a Radio Presenter with the BBC and currently Jazz FM.

The first episode, which is available now on all popular podcast apps, talks to Nick Edwards himself about his 25 years of dedicated television lighting experience, having held technical, commercial and management positions at some of the industry's biggest and well-known companies PRG, Panalux and Aurora, after his training at the flagship training facility in BBC Wood Norton, all before founding Version 2 back in 2016. 

Nick talks through the whole journey, starting from where it began at St Clement Danes School and why Nick has subsequently gone back to be a Governor of the School. To working as a technician across the UK, Europe, and the Middle East with show credits including 'The X-Factor', 'The Brit Awards', 'Live Earth', 'The Royal Variety Performance', 'MTV Europe Awards', 'The Bafta's' and the 'Eurovision Song Contest'.

The first and all future episodes can be found anywhere you get your podcasts.
