Limelight Academy – The First Time is the Best Time
And what an amazing start that was! We built up the program in a week and landed our first Projection Mapping Masterclass with Factory Light Festival in Norway. It’s been a dream of István’s to work with them – and dreams come true, right? The idea of Limelight Academy was to: • Share our knowledge, especially things that can’t be learned at schools • Give an alternative to mapping contests for young talents to create great artworks with professional support and feedback • Developing a pipeline of talents that can later be part of the Limelight network and collaborators for future projects • Establish long-term partnerships with light festivals to deliver new artworks and artists with an international education program • Have fun, lots of it And this is what happened: • Found 5 great talents and 4 of them managed to complete the program and are very happy with the knowledge they obtained • The artworks created by the applicants were great in quality and a great success as well at the festival • Two of the program members collaborated with us already on a Limelight project and we’re planning to work with the other two artists as well in the future, so they didn’t only gain knowledge but future opportunities as well • Factory Light Festival wants to continue the program with us, and we received further requests from other light festivals even before the first Masterclass was finished – we’re announcing the next one in two weeks • We definitely had a great time!
