May 2016: Projection Design Workshop with Jamie Nesbitt

After attending a 3-hour workshop led by projection designer Jamie Nesbitt in Victoria, Open Pit Theatre was inspired to offer an extended version here in Whitehorse.  

From May 6-9, 2016 a hands-on workshop was offered to Yukon videographers, multi-media artists, theatre directors, photographers, and theatre creators.

The workshop introduced participants to the art and use of projections.  Jamie outlined how and when projections can be used for those wishing to incorporate projections into their art - whether it be for theatre, performance art, visual art, music performances, or public events.  Each participant was provided temporary access to the software that Jamie uses to design his projections, and from there learned the basic skills of projection design.  We covered image sourcing, mapping, editing, and execution. 

Jamie is an award winning designer and has worked in every major theatre across Canada and we were very lucky to have him as our guest!  Here is a link to his website:

Thank you to the Cultural Industry Training Fund for making this workshop possible!
