VIDEO MAPPING & LIVE VJ PERFORMANCES
I have been involved in the world of VJing and video mapping for over 25 years, and have had the opportunity to work on a wide range of events and projects during that time. My journey in VJing began in 1995, when I was using two VHS tape players and an analog video mixer to provide visual support at festivals and parties in the UK. Some of the festivals and events I worked at during this time included Glastonbury, Shambala, Sunrise Celebration, and The Glade. I was also a resident VJ at the Synergy Project, an indoor London festival with a 1400-person capacity.
In the late 1990s, the digital video revolution arrived, and I was able to take advantage of the new technology by purchasing the first Sony Digital video camcorder and transitioning to working in broadcast quality for production studios and advertising agencies in London. I worked on motion graphics and special effects for these clients, and gained valuable experience in the field.
More recently, I have focused on video mapping, using specialised software and hardware to create immersive visual experiences at events such as the London Fashion Awards, Ricard Global Congress at Les Embiez, BBC Awards at the Sky Gardens tower, and Le Mystere du Dernier Duel show at the Carrouges Castle. I have a dozen of powerful video projectors at my disposal, and am well-equipped to handle projects of any size or scope.
Overall, my years of experience in VJing and video mapping have given me the skills and expertise necessary to deliver top-quality visual support for a wide range of events. I offer a range of services and am available for events and projects worldwide.
LE MYSTERE DU DERNIER DUEL – Immersive Theatre
The Mystery of the Last Duel is an immersive, nocturnal, and detective-themed theater experience that takes place on the grounds of the Carrouges Castle. This immersive event combines elements of theater and video mapping to transport attendees into the shoes of the lords of Carrouges.
AQUARIUS RISING EVENT
I co-created and produced the Aquarius Rising event with Jay and Amida in 2017. It was held on the grounds of the Dartington Hall Estate in Totnes, UK, and was a huge success, consistently selling out in advance due to its unique combination of being both alcohol-free and vegan. Jay was in charge of managing the chill out area, as well as handling the logistics and administration for the event. Amida was responsible for the sound, ensuring that attendees were treated to a high-quality audio experience with a Bose sound system and 4 kW of sound.
I was responsible for creating the brand and live visuals for the event, as well as handling the technical side of the video installation, which included using three video projectors to create a fully immersive experience with sound-responsive videos that were mixed live on the night of the event. The video mapping covered half of an octagonal room and was an impressive 25 meters wide.
In addition to the live drumming and stunning visuals, I also created three branded drinks featuring herbal supplements like maca and guarana to offer something unique to attendees. My efforts in organizing and promoting the event, including a successful social media campaign, all contributed to the event’s overall success.
The success of Aquarius Rising is a good showcase of my abilities as an event creator and producer, and I would be excited to create a new event in a similar style somewhere on this planet in the future.
If you have any ideas for collaboration, I would love to hear from you and discuss potential opportunities!
