Oscar Dominguez, the founder and head designer of DARKFIRE INC, is the man behind the exciting visuals of NBC’s THE VOICE, THE BACHELOR and SHARK TANK. With over 20 years of experience lighting live and episodic television, he is one of an elite group capable of producing the large scale lighting spectacle that top-rated TV shows demand. Darkfire is a three-time Emmy Award-winning company, in the categories of outstanding lighting design and outstanding lighting direction for a variety series.
DARKFIRE works closely with producers, art directors, and videographers to create a lighting plot, budget and equipment recommendations. New technology appears on the marketplace every week and DARKFIRE’s technicians check out its viability and compatibility with modern cameras. The expectations of the TV viewing public have never been higher and the range of traditional and LED-based fixtures has never been wider. A generation raised on excellence in concert lighting wants the same look and texture in their favorite weekly TV show. Fortunately, modern camera technology has allowed designers like Oscar to re-create the looks that were previously only possible in live concerts.
Lighting for television is a collaborative process; with the convergence of set, lighting and special effects, the business of design is becoming more specialized. DARKFIRE continues to take a leading role and with every show renews its mission to bring visual excitement to millions of television viewers.
