Beginners Guide to Video Design
led by Douglas Baker
This two-hour workshop simplified the process of working with video. The workshop is aimed at directors, designers and theatre-makers looking to include or improve video design in their practice. But anyone who wishes to learn more about the process is welcome!
Step by step pointers will help participants build confidence when working with video in performance and rehearsal. The workshop will cover:
- Working with cameras & monitors
- Technical tips and shortcuts
- Picking your projector
- How to use video in your show without massive expense
- Projection mapping
- Photoshop basics & making work with QLab
- How to source imagery
- How to use video design in the rehearsal room
There is also an opportunity to get some hands-on experience, and time to answer your questions.
Participants are asked to bring in a photograph of something that is emotionally significant to them – it could be a pet, a family member, or any object of significance.
The workshop is led by Douglas Baker, an award-nominated interdisciplinary theatre maker specialising in video, live cameras and animation. Ten Days in a Madhouse is his fourth show with video as the main creative tool.
