I'm a video designer making work for all forms of live performance, with a special interest in music based work. Here is some of my work and the work of others I admire. You can email me
ywca asked:
Hi, I'm starting at Royal Central in September doing Design for the Stage and I'm really interested in Projection Design and Mapping, I think your work is amazing. Which course on the Theatre Practice strand did you do and did you do any training after you finished your degree to get to where you are now?
I answered:

Hello,

I did what is now called Performance Arts, in my day it was called Alternative Theatre! It was largely focused on Directing, producing and dramaturgy.  I got into the video through lighting programming and a life long interest in Photography.  I didn’t do any formal training after leaving.  I did a lot of self learning of software etc.

CSSD is good at supporting those with an interest in Video.  Make sure they know you are interested.  Learn all you can about aftereffects and cinema 4d.

Giovanni Battista Piranesi prison etchings were our source material for Cellini.  The set is a series of three dimensional Piranesi like structures and video completes the up-stage agrea of the set.  We animated Pirenasi’s work into a twisting and sprialing world to swallow up Cellini and even take him down to hell.  That and a few angelic glowing clouds for the arrival of th Pope!

Last night I was lucky enough to win the Olivier for Best Lighting, shared with the wonderful Tim Lutkin for the outstanding Chimerica at the Almedia and Harold Pinter last year.

We also share the win with lighting designer Paul Pyant and video designer John Driscol who both did amazing work on Charly and the Chocolate Factory.

I was wonderful to share the win with another show that shows how a good collaboration between a lighting and video designer can be and very encouraging to see that SOLT are beginning to recognise the work us video designers have been doing.

On a personal note seeing Chimerica win all 5 awards it was nominated for was one of the most exciting things I have ever experienced.

Collider - London Science Museum - Making of photos
With the exhibition now open and about to head off to it’s first tour date I thought it would be interesting to share some behind the scenes photos taken on our 3 different visits to CERN where we were privileged to be allowed into the CMS and LHCb detector caverns and the control room for the LHC itself.  We were also free to roam the large, bizarre and amazing Meyrin site which is the central hub of CERN.
In the course of these visits we photographed the Meyrin site extensively, especially the doors for the large format print in the exhibition.  We also took 360 degree dome photographs of the control centre and the CMS detector.  I will post some of these soon.
In the pictures you will see our excellent team comprised of the following:
Adam Young - Director of Animation
Carolyn Downing - Sound Designer
Pippa Nissen - Creative Director & Architect 
Ash Fridd - Architect 
Ben Walden - Camera Wrangler Extraordinaire 
Dr Harry Cliff - Science Museum fellow and explainer of complicated things
