AntiVJ Lab: Live painting and mapping

Since the launch of the label, everything is going even faster than before, and we have loads of new projects, ideas and bookings coming up..

I’ve been exploring new fields recently:

- Dome projection, in Bristol planetarium, with the mexican producer Murcof, and the 360° projection format is very immersive, even more than I expected, so I think I’ll carry on with this technique.

- Stereoscopic projection, with polarised filters and silverscreen (same technology as Imax3D), to make visuals appears in 3 Dimensions to the audience. This is also a fascinating technique, and we are investing a lot in this way, and we’ll do more dates soon for the stereoscopic tour, with french band “Principles of Geometry“.
- More experiments, with lights, DMX and perception. Read more →

Lightup Bristol

A new very exciting project ! Some Bristolian creative agencies are teaming up to produce and project moving images on the council house building during the week before christmas.

The Lightup Bristol project started last year, with some still images projections designed by Aardman Animations, Play NicelyWatershed, and the organisers were interested in having me on board after seeing my mapping technique on Youtube (mapping on my neighbours house). Read more →

Cuisine 11 – Sigma6

For this 11th edition of our Cuisine clubnight, we had the brilliant VJ duo “Sigma6″ from Geneva. I’ve met Florian and Eric at the Mapping festival last summer, and then at Tweakfest in Zurich, where we did a workshop and a live set, and we had a chance to share idea and realize we had commons interests in design, visuals installations etc…

So they came to Bristol to perform at our A/V clubnight “Cuisine”, and played together for a couple of hour on a semi transparent screens installation over the crowd (designed by another brilliant Swiss VJ: Lego_man).

They are great producers and have a very special taste for urban slices and industrial architecture visuals, playing efficiently with light, depth and immersive visuals. Read more →

VJschool Interview

We did a new VJschool workshop a couple of weeks ago, as a part of the Compass film festival with conferences, live demos and screenings at the Watershed in Bristol.

I’ve been invited to a local radioshow with one of the Guest Vjs, Spark, to talk about visuals, vjing and cinema.. I’m not quite good at explaining things, but I found Toby captivating: Read more →

Un peu de peinture

Enfin un dimanche aprèm ensoleillé à Bristol. L’occasion idéale de se remettre un peu à la peinture (et à l’édition vidéo). Pas vraiment fan du résultat, mais j’aime beaucoup les plans fixes accélérés, la prochaine fois j’y penserais en filmant pour me “dupliquer” plus proprement et jouer avec l’idée.. Read more →
