Lighting Designer / Director, ADDITIVE
We're thrilled to be working with local Melbourne lighting designer Paul Lim of ADDITIVE to bring our September 2018 pop-up space at Melbourne Fashion Week (MFW) to life! In collaboration with Architecture Architecture, the team will be transforming Swanston Hall at the iconic Melbourne Town Hall into a unique retail space to house 19 designers for 8 days!
ADDITIVE, made up of Tom Wright, Ben 'Bosco' Shaw and Paul Lim, is a design and technical production house who love a challenge. After years of working on productions and festivals around the world, the three experienced professionals, and close friends, joined forces to harness their collective industry experience and technical knowledge.
Whether it’s an innovative design, a complex activation or an expansive festival, concert, theatre production or event, ADDITIVE offer experience, knowledge and creativity to deliver an elegant solution tailored to any budget or timeline.
There aren’t many aspects of putting on a show that Paul hasn’t tackled and succeeded in during his career. He uses this multi-faceted knowledge, plus a keen interest in emerging technologies, to provide integrated solutions in theatres, festivals and events around the world.
To date, Paul's lighting designs have been seen in Australia, UK, Ireland, Germany, France, USA, Canada, China, India and New Zealand.
His most recent work includes: Changes 變 and Siva for Black Grace Dance Company, Nirbhaya (directed by Yael Farber; recipient of Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award, Scotsman Fringe First, Herald Angel Award for Outstanding New Play; touring UK, India and North America), Fault Lines (directed by Sara Brodie and Le Shan Modern Dance Company), Briefs: The Second Coming (touring Australia, UK and Europe), Effie: The Virgin Bride for Frontier Mushroom and Struttin with some BBQ for Australian Art Orchestra.
His extensive experience working with festivals includes Festival Lighting Designer for Melbourne Festival, Head of Lighting for Assembly at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Head of Lighting for Auckland Arts Festival.
