Workshop

TouchDesigner in the Stage Performance Field

Since the introduction of TouchDesigner for Macs many video designers working in the field of stage performance are eager to integrate the platform into their practice. As TouchDesigner becomes more widely used by individuals working in stage performance they are searching for solutions as issues, specific to the industry, arise.


In this workshop participants will learn how to adapt TouchDesigner for the production of dance and theatrical performances. We will examine how to collaborate with performance directors and stage and sound designers. Based on the instructor’s experience the workshop will include a discussion of production timelines, including rehearsal details and what to expect in terms of project adaptation and revisions. We will address the necessity and method of separating different parts of a performance into scenes, how to create a project that is reliable and easy to transfer to technicians, and how to create a UI that is usable in small spaces.
