About the Author:

Anne E. McMills’ career extends across the vast landscape of the lighting world – from theatre (including Broadway and the West End) to television and theme parks to architecture, industrials, concerts, awards shows, dance, and opera. In addition to designing her own work, Anne works as an associate lighting designer assisting award-winning Broadway designers such as Brian MacDevitt, Howell Binkley, Peter Kaczorowski, Jason Lyons, David Lander, Brian Monahan, and Ken Billington. Anne is the Head of Design at California State University, Los Angeles, and a member of United Scenic Artists, Local 829. In the Fall of 2014, Anne will join the faculty of San Diego State University, leading the MFA in Lighting Design.

Review:

"The Assistant Lighting Designer's Toolkit is a book the lighting world needs and should be required reading for all new – and not so new – lighting designers."

– Ken Billington

"The Assistant Lighting Designer's Toolkit sets out to fill a big gap in the market of lighting books -- a huge help to so many aspiring ALD's and teaches us 'mature' designers how to better behave! This book is marvelous."

– Richard Pilbrow, internationally known Author and Lighting Designer; voted "one of the 50 most powerful people in the entertainment technology industry" (Live Design 2010)

"The Assistant Lighting Designer's Toolkit is a great addition to just about everyone's lighting library. Lots of how-to info from the tech table battle front."

– Scott Parker, Lighting Designer, Columbus State University

"This unique, impressive book has the detail of a Broadway lighting show “bible” with each element of a lighting design clearly prepared, presented and documented...It is vital reading for a designer or student going to work or study in the US."

- Paul Davies, Focus Magazine

"The Assistant Lighting Designer’s Toolkit is...chock-full of information and insights. Whatever your experience level, it is a worthy addition to your theatre library. For those making the transition from life as a lighting design student to the professional market, it is an invaluable resource."

- Ellen E. Jones, Lighting & Sound America

"The Assistant Lighting Designer's Toolkit is now on my short list of the two or three most important books for aspiring professional lighting designers. She [Anne E. McMills] has completed a task that began twenty-five years ago with a brief magazine article by Craig Miller. As he would have said, "A Plus, Gold Star!""

- Michael Lincoln, Threatre Design & Technology
