THE VJ IS YOU
FIND YOUR VOICE IN THE VJ INDUSTRY
If God is a Dj, the VJ must be the eyes through which he sees beauty in rhythm, shapes, visuals and geometrical patterns.
It was long believed that only music could make us transcend, but in today's world it's hard to imagine a dancefloor without lights and projection.
Visuals add meaning to sound and helps you immerse in a world of beauty, trippy images and wild imagination.
It is apparent that Music on it's own is not enough! Visuals plays such an important role in captivating the mind of an audience and it gives both the DJ and the people a medium through which to connect and communicate. Not just 'Feel the Beat', but experience it visually.
For this 7th Edition, FMIN teamed up with VJ Union Australia to bring you a very special event.
The free workshop is designed to give you a complete understanding of the Visual Art Industry, Vjing & Djing, Projection Mapping, Hardware & Software and Content creation.
What is the history of Vjing and where is it going?
How #tech positively impacts the industry?
Is it just a hobby or can I make a living out of it?
Is Vjing slowly moving away from Video?
This event is ideal for anyone:
Interested in working with visuals,
Dj's who would like to collaborate with Vj's,
Anyone working with 3D, Lights & Projection.
The Vj is You!
