BA (Hons) Media Production

At University, a common misconception is that all your assignments are essays! Well, I can say from experience this is not the case! You can get a whole range of assessment type’s throughout your university education.

My favourite project this year was the assignment for a unit I had called Stories & Spaces. Our brief was to:

“In groups, create a short piece of projection mapping that augments a piece of dance”.

So, what actually is Projection Mapping?

Projection Mapping is the display of video content and motion graphics on surfaces that are not intended as display’s. Projection mapping is routinely used in theatre and performance to create virtual sets, visual effects and more.

For submission, this project was then displayed at a live event where all the groups presented their projection!

You can watch the full performance here (I recommend listening with headphones).
