Video for installation and performance

Workshop January 22-23 and 29-30, 2011, from noon to 6 pm

This workshop is designed to jump-start creative approaches to the use of video in performance and installation. Lawson and Pollard introduce participants to an imaginative toolset that includes some high-tech and some very low-tech solutions to common problems in video projection design.

The workshop will be given in french by biligual instructors.

  • Implementation of workflow: How to plan a project without killing your creativity;
  • Introduction to a variety of simple production techniques geared to cost, non-standardised approaches to using video;
  • Introduction to post-production and compositing tools for making ordinary video perform in extraordinary ways.


  • Basic experience with video equipment (cameras) and with non-linear editing (iMovie, Final Cut Pro);
  • Be a professional artist, creator or cultural worker;
  • Be a self-employed worker or a salaried employee in an enterprise not subject to 1% Training Investment*;
  • Attend every session;
  • Present a short description (one paragraph) of a project you would like to initiate during the workshop.
