How will I receive my final product?
I can export your animations out to many formats including stand-alone digital movie files (so you can import them into your cueing software) or a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that's ready to use in the theatre. Other formats are available. Just ask.
Will it be possible to have my projections cued to time?
Yes. They can include dramatic timings from your Director’s (or Stage Manager's) notes. I would talk to them about this to get the best cued-up file for your production. Sometimes cues can even be timed to music. The possibilities are limitless.
How long will my project take?
The requirements for each project will be very different. I will take the time to completely understand and replicate your artistic goals. Achieving this may require a few conceptual discussion meetings, and it may be necessary for you to see several demos or drafts of proposed work. However, my aim will be get to your project completed within the time-frame you decide.
Do you provide projection equipment?
Not currently, but images can easily be projected onto a screen or wall, depending on the venue you have in mind. Projector equipment can be expensive, but as it's becoming mainstream to use projections, competitive pricing is becoming more available. I'll do my best to help you find the equipment you'll need, if your theatre can't source it easily.
What are your costs / rates / fees?
As it says on the home page, I will do my best to work within your budget. I want you have a fabulous-looking show! Let's talk about your project first (at no cost to you), and then we can better determine how much time it will take to bring it to glorious life. We can work on a set fee/budget, or by the hour, whichever is most flexible for you.
Can you record my actors and make them a part of the projections?
Yes, it may be possible to record your actors in advance performing their antics in front of a green screen. With this I can isolate their bodies and put them in front of any still or animated background you can imagine. This will allow you to create a virtual or interactive experience between your projected characters and live stage characters. Timing may be tricky in some circumstances, but it's possible!
Can you do sound effects, audio or original music to go with the projections?
Yes, I sure can. I have a dedicated website for original music composition services. Bear in mind that adding sound or music will increase the overall time required to complete a project as the audio will be another component that we work on together.
