Limelight Academy – Are Our Masterclasses for You?
Limelight Academy was born from our desire to share knowledge and nurture talent. We believe that projection mapping as an art form should be accessible to everyone, and we want to inspire the future generation of artists to create and get involved with this community.
Masterclass is a program that gives upcoming artists an opportunity to broaden their knowledge and understanding of video mapping and motion design. It was designed for artists with previous experience in animation and motion design. If you are new to this field, Masterclass may not be for you. However, a unique artistic view and approach can weigh more than perfect 3D skills when it comes to our decision making. We’re not looking for perfection – it’s important for us that there’s a good balance among the participants in terms of style, and we choose the best applicant for each style we want to see represented. You might have a great idea, but your animations skills need some improvement and that’s absolutely fine. Some skills can’t be taught and may well be more valuable in the decision making!
We’re looking for artists with a strong interest in projection mapping, who are determined and passionate about this form of art. You will be asked to prepare an introduction video where we have the chance to get to know you a bit better and understand the reason why you want to apply to the program. We’re looking for uniqueness, a fresh approach, someone with a desire to learn and put 100% in. Our Masterclass is a big commitment and we want to make sure that the applicants are willing to give their best. In return, we will go all-in to support you and help you progress on your journey as an artist. You will learn skills that are not taught in tutorials. And of course, you will have the chance to showcase your artwork at a light festival! So, are you Masterclass-ready?
We already some have plans for Masterclass Vol. 4 – stay tuned!
