Have you seen projection mapping in the world and are jonesing to get in on the fun? Whether it seems a little complicated to get started – or you’re just curious how it works – this introductory workshop will get you comfortable enough to begin projection mapping.

  • How to find the right projector for your idea
  • Understanding your surface
  • Multi-projector setup

Then, jam all that information into a QLab 5 practical! Project footage onto a 3D object and feel like a magician.Participant Requirements: Computer with QLab 5 installed with Video License ($5/day rental). Please contact EMMEDIA if this is a barrier for you. Feel free to bring your own footage to project. Specs: 1:1 ratio, Apple ProRes HQ, .mov.Instructor: Mackenzie Bedford (they/them)

The universe, by nature, is mysterious and queer. Constantly yearning to see stories that have the imagination and diversity it demands; they are revealing the queerness of the cosmos through interdisciplinary approaches. Their tools for exploration involve animation; illustration; installation; and public art.

Projection mapping since 2021, they have since gone on to create work for public installations, theatre, live music and film all over the province. As the founder of MAPPERZ, a local projection mapping club, they are committed to making the medium accessible, to both create and enjoy.
