This was Tim's third series as lighting director for the live studio shows and arena final at Wembley... over one hundred performances lit and programmed in a huge variety of styles modern and old with some of the latest and most dynamic lighting kit. The lighting rig at the Xfactor is the biggest in UK TV and the brief is to create a live concert on TV with the studio always having a feel of an arena with as many audience and concert lighting techniques as possible.
