Video Mapping & Augmented Reality Workshop

Video mapping and Augmented Reality are part of the evolution of visual art – they indicate a manifestation of technology to create an optical illusion while playing with light. As a conclusion, ordinary objects are changed into awesome magical creations. Artists can simply apply their majestic sketches to any 3D materials, for example buildings. 

Within Visegrad Film Hub 2022, in cooperation with  TRAKT from Slovakia and Photon Foundation from Poland, the Video Mapping + Augmented Reality Workshop intends to give the participants an overview of the different possibilities to create a live installation wrapping projected virtual content around a real world object.

The first editions of the workshop (2019/2021) were a great success, with over 200 people applying for participation. Its third edition will return in a more complex and open source format, for participants and festival audience to interact. It will cover various options of how to create content (both pre-produced and in real time) and how to apply it on an object using various mapping methods. 

Furthermore, the visitors will get a comprehensive insight on what kind of content works best, based on the nature of the individual, illuminated objects. The educational event invites the participants to discover the space of projection in volume and the production line of the video mapping with a contemporary approach. This was tailored to build on the strengths of the new emerging talents, and equip them with a full understanding of both the workflow, and the technical skills required to create interactive projection mapped installations.

Throughout the workshop, general public will get the opportunity to enjoy the V4 Expanded: VR CORNER – interactive exhibition of several virtual reality projects from emerging studios in Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Czechia. This experience is a novelty brought by BEAST IFF in collaboration with its V4 partners and Supported by International Visegrad Fund.
