Abbey leads the Projection Master Class at LDI

Abbey was proud this year to serve as creative consultant for the Projection Master Classes at LDI. Abbey took the attendees on a tour of current media design. From opera to concert to spectacle to see examples of recent design spanning the methods and technologies of this rapidly expanding discipline that crosses the boundaries of cinema, theatre, and visual storytelling.  

Abbey brought together professionals like Vello Virkhaus and Dave Taylor to join in the conversation about the current state of the art and to discuss how it is used to create amazing projection design.

OK GO @ YouTube Play

Abbey just got done lighting the YouTube Play project at the Guggenheim. This was a challenging show based around an immersive video environment designed by Anton Goss and Obscura Digital. Abbey needed to create a balanced design for the broadcast audience which highlighted the projection while showcasing the live performers.
