Projection Mapping - Light, Form & The Stage

Sun 21 July 2019
12:00pm - 5:00pm

PART TWO - Light, Form + The Stage (July 21)

This hands-on course teaches students to customize graphical content (video, image) and then map this content on to physical 3D objects using Isadora*. Students will have the opportunity to put these techniques to use by workshopping with assigned actors, playwrights, and other key players in the professional arts and theatre industry.

*Working knowledge of Isadora is a requirement to take this course. Successful completion of the "Projection Mapping for Artists 101" course will suffice.
