Shop Order

When a lighting hang is begun, the first task for the Master Electrician and crew is to gather the appropriate materials from the lighting shop. This is where the shop order comes in. It is the lighting designer's duty to assemble a list of all materials required from the shop. This list includes control elements such as lighting boards, dimmers, lighting instruments, effects devices, etc.

Each lighting designer has a favorite method for preparing shop orders. The specific format is not important, as long as it accurately lists all materials required for a production.
