Crash Course in Digital Theatre

With the growing interest and need for digital work during the pandemic, Vertigo Theatre has taken the knowledge we have gained in audio and video creation to offer a crash course in digital theatre creation. This workshop will take three key components of digital creation; video, audio, and digital dissemination and introduce artists to the basics of each.

Vertigo will employ different instructors for each component so we might offer a variety of perspectives and focuses for participants.

This workshop will offer knowledge in an accessible way to the artists in our community who may require some of this information to succeed on their next virtual project. With the world of performance expanding, we want to find innovative ways to connect and create with one another, which requires many new learnings for all of the artists in our theatre world.
