Projection design is a vast and complex form that has become ubiquitous in the creation of theatre. Successful projection design requires a great deal of skill and versatility even though technological advances in software and affordable projectors have made it much easier to program a show. Equal weight must be placed on technical learning as well as the creation of video art.
Participants in this three-day intensive will join award-winning designer Jamie Nesbitt in the hands-on exploration and application of theatre projection. Participants will utilize software that enables them to navigate complex projection challenges while developing video content that will make their art look amazing. The master class will focus on the integration of design programs including After Effects and Photoshop with Isadora projection software.
This master class is intended for theatre designers and technicians wishing to learn or improve upon their video projection design skills. Computer workstations will be provided, however participants are welcome to bring personal Mac laptops.
