Masterclass Volume 3
Limelight Academy, a worldwide one-of-a-kind concept, was born from the idea to create an alternative to mapping contests for light festivals and a unique education program for young talents from around the world. Unlike mapping contests, we offer our applicants financial and professional support for their work - you don’t need to create content without help in order to be chosen, participants are selected based on their portfolio and dedication to the project. In 2019, we, again, teamed up with Factory Light Festival to bring emerging motion designers and 2D/3D animators our Masterclass Vol. 3 – a unique experience, which offered them a 3-month-long education program with a chance to further their skills under the supervision of the experts at Limelight, and to showcase their 2-3 minute projection mapping artworks at Factory Light Festival in Norway.
Thanks to all who participated and supported our third Masterclass, after a 3-month training program, five youngsters from different parts of the world got the opportunity to present their work at Factory Light Festival, an independent light festival in Slemmestad, Norway, showcasing the best artistic video mapping and light installations to be found on the post-industrial canvas of a cement factory. At a 5-day workshop and a site visit in Norway, our founders and artists provided participants with hard-to-obtain knowledge that basically laid the foundation for the success of their projects. The theme for the festival this year was Reflections that our team and the participants built their artworks around, which were presented in Slemmestad with great success. Check out the works below!
