Isadora (Introduction + Level 1)
3 Day Course
Date: Friday 9th - Sunday 11th November 2012
Times: 10.30am to 4.30pm
Instructor: Jamie Griffiths
This 3 day introductory workshop with Jamie Griffiths is aimed at visual artists, VJs, DJs, singers, musicians, performance artists, choreographers and film-makers, but is also suitable for anyone wanting to learn entry-level interactive programming.
Jamie offers 6 months of follow up email consultations for all workshop participants and one-on-one consultation sessions throughout the workshop process.
This introductory and level one workshop with Jamie Griffiths is a fast-track entry into interactive Live Art design that frees you up from perceived programming limitations, giving you the confidence and skills you need to start experimenting with interactive designs using Isadora software. Isadora is graphical programming software that you build up with modules, without needing to learn complex programming languages. No prior programming experience is needed. Isadora can interactively control cameras, video, sound, lights and sensors. This introductory weekend workshop focuses on learning how to design a small interactive gallery or performance space, for interactive control of video and sound.
