Introduction to Projection Design
This course will introduce students to all aspects of video design for integration with live performance. In this hands-on class, students will learn how to generate still and moving-image content and how to edit and prepare media. Fundamental image and video editing will be covered by using Adobe’s Creative Suite and Apple’s Final Cut Pro. Students will also learn programming, using Isadora software, as well as the specifics of hardware components that include mixers, monitors, and projectors and how to work with multiple screens. In addition, the course will include viewing and discussions of contemporary projection design and will address creative considerations of the practice. Students will complete a series of short assignments during the year and will develop a more realized design project for a final presentation. This class meets once a week.
