Projection or video design involves the creation and integration of moving and static images into a stage picture. In most cases, we work closely with the director and designer to develop an appropriate visual language, and to answer the question, 'what role does the video play?' in any dramatic moment. Our job involves bringing together a variety of visual disciplines - photography, animation, filmmaking and graphic art and subsequently working out the best way - creatively, and technically - to integrate them into a stage production. The vast majority of our work involves projection as the means by which images and footage are displayed on the stage, but we also work with screens, lights, and various emerging display technologies as they become available. We always involve ourselves technically as well as artistically in any project, to ensure the best fit for the job in terms of equipment and approach.
