“Think about how many times you’ve walked into a room.
When people first walk in, it’s beautiful but somebody needs to monitor the room the whole night because as a dinner gets more comfortable and more moody, you want to bring the lights down.
You want to talk to the crowd with the lighting.

A lot of the problems that people have is that when you walk in, usually, you want to keep it a little bright so people can see their places and things like that.

As people settle, we want to bring the lighting down.

So it’s also important to make sure that whoever is working on that show is aware of this because it’s something that people forget.”
