Dedicated to making light arts inclusive

When István and Viktor founded Limelight, their core mission statement was to create cutting edge artworks that were public and accessible to all. Now, after years of leading the way in the industry, the mission has expanded to train the next generations of artists while making the industry more inclusive. The pool of talented artists includes both international and local students, and we aim for a class evenly split between men and women.

History of the Masterclass

Since its inception in 2018, the Masterclass has produced over 30 alumni, all of whose work has been shown to thousands of people at the sponsoring festivals. Now on its fifth volume, Limelight’s Masterclass continues to be one of the only ways for aspiring motion designers to get free education on how to take their work to the next level.
