Plan for lighting is going to be a 3 inch recessed above each column (8 in total) and then 4 of those same across the front of the stage highlighting the screen.
Also will have rope light in the sofit and a rope light vs 'spot lights' just behind the screen to showcase speakers.
There will be a small accent light under the 'bar' (third row of seating) as well as 2 lights for the riser step.
The Grafik Eye that I got is a 6 zone, for right now I'm planning on the following:
Zone 1: recessed above columns.
Zone 2: lights above stage.
Zone 3: rope light.
Zone 4: behind screen lights.
and then setting up the 'scenes' for:
1 - "pre/post show" with midlevel brightness.
2 - "watching" with everything turned down.
3 - "intermission" with midlevel lighting, enough for some egress but not too much brightness.
