Our Projection Design Workshop will introduce participants to the art and use of projections. Jamie will outline how and when projections can be used in a hands-on-workshop suitable 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 will be provided with temporary access to the software that Jamie uses to design his projections, and from there will learn the basic skills of projection design. We will cover image sourcing, mapping, editing, and display. A limited number of projectors and computers will be provided for the group to experiment with throughout the weekend. If possible, please bring your own computer.
This is an introductory course so no direct experience is required. That being said, the work is computer based so those registering should be comfortable working on a computer.
The workshop hours will be:
Friday, May 6 = 6pm-9pm
Saturday, May 7 = 10am-4pm (with a 1 hour lunch)
Sunday, May 8 = 10am-4pm (with a 1 hour lunch)
The cost of the workshop is $150 per person and a maximum of ten participants will be accepted. With such limited availability a non-refundable deposit of $50 per person is required in order to hold your spot.
