Mappathon™: Projection Mapping for Beginners

Mappathon™: Projection Mapping for Beginners

425.00

New Media for artists and creators.

Get hands-on instruction from accomplished NYC visiting educator & new media artist, CHiKA in this 2-day projection mapping marathon workshop for beginners at Austin School of Film.

This 2-day class will provide students with a practical foundation for creating installations using Modul8, MadMapper, and Vezer. Projection mapping technology can turn almost any surface into a dynamic video display. Specialized software, nodul8, and madMapper are used to create animation, warp and blend projected images, so they fit perfectly on irregularly shaped “screens.”

Students will learn the newest techniques in projection mapping – no experience necessary. Not only will students walk away with their very own projection mapping artwork, but they will also get to a free 30-day full access to Modul8, MadMapper, and Vezer to continue to develop their practice.

Topics covered include:

  • How to make a live visual animation using Modul8

  • Projection mapping exercise with madMapper

  • Projection Mapping Set-up (gear)

  • Projection Mapping with Music using Vezer

  • Introducing MiniMad: Installation without a computer

  • Creating a Projection Mapping Installation

This workshop is produced in partnership with EYEON.

ABOUT MAPPATHON™: Mappathon™ is inspired by the hackathon, an event where computer programmers, graphic designers, interface designers, and project managers collaborate intensively on projects within a limited time frame. Mappathon™ has remixed the traditional hackathon and designed a variety of Projection Mapping Workshops for creative minds of every level.

The projection mapping technology can turn almost any surface into a dynamic video display. Specialized software, modul8, and madMapper, are used to create animation, warp and blend projected images, so they fit perfectly on irregularly shaped “screens”. These projections then become independent organisms, expressing characters through their designated language: that of space, light, form, and sound. The primary tool taught in the workshop is the software package, madMapper, and modul8 for Mac.
