The Rock & Roll Lighting Engineer

The Rock & Roll Lighting Engineer

Top tip: if you see someone doing the lighting at a gig, just lean over to them and say “you’re the light of my life”, they will swoon and be yours forever. Also talk about how disappointed you were when that Spotlight movie wasn’t actually about spotlights.

That’s the kind of inside scoop you can only get here, at 40 Hours.

Tiffany Hudson has been working and touring in the gigging scene for a solid 12 years now, most recently as a lighting engineer – helping everything look great up there on stage. She was kind enough to to talk to me for a while in her home in East London.
