Course Introduction

This programme aims to provide specialist training in the field of projection and video'based arts forms. Attendees will work on projects with professional designers, programmers and animators, such as gallery installations, projection work for Guildhall productions and VJing at festivals and club nights. The programme shares some of the professional theatre skills and theory modules of the BA in Technical Theatre Arts. These are complemented with a more specialised series of modules related to video design and content creation, technical management, system design and live operation / programming.

Course Modules
