“I like MadMapper. I feel comfortable using it because I’m following the evolution of the software since the first version.” by VJ Vigas.
MadMapper: Tell us about yourself? Leandro Mendes aka VJ Vigas: I began my research in audiovisual performances in university in 2003, where I presented a live performance mixing images with music. In 2012, I won the international VJs tournament Videozone. In 2013, I won the 1st place of the three editions of the competition VJ TORNA International, held in Mexico City (Mexico), Rome (Italy) and Cape Town (South Africa). I was repeating the feat in May 2014 in the city of Istanbul in Turkey.
“Having an affordable software solution that works well without expensive unique hardware is key for us.” by Limbic Cinema.
MadMapper: Tell us about yourself? Limbic Cinema:Limbic Cinema is a co-operative of artists based in Bristol formed in 2012 by the members, Alex Wright, Tom Newell, Thomas E Pryce and Thomas Buttery.
We met as VJ’s on the club and festival circuits around the UK and decided we should team up. Despite the inconsistent wages and sticky floors, club nights always provided us the creative freedom to experiment and take risks. Over the course of four years, we’ve built strong relationships with festivals and events that we share a similar ethos and creative visions with; we’re particularly fond of Glastonbury Festival, Shambala, Freerotation, Alfresco Disco and Greenman Festival where we’ve exhibited numerous installations and in 2015 projection.
Beyond the music scene, we’re focusing more on the realms of theatre, large-scale building mapping, and Art Installations. For example, making contributions to The Stick House, and bringing the Wren Library in Cambridge to life with narrative driven visuals were both hugely fulfilling projects.
“Madmapper changed the way that we were making mappings, things get easier.”
By VJ Eletroiman
MadMapper: Tell us about yourself? VJ Eletroiman: Hi, my name is Ricardo Cançado, aka VJ Eletroiman, and since 2000 I am working with VJing, stage design, audiovisual performance and in the last years I was dedicated to Video-Mapping techniques.
Since the beginning of 2003, I am developing a Live AV called Representa Corisco. This project was based on an imagery inspired by the Brazilian popular culture and it explores political and social issues through the iconography of the “cangaço” movement and one of its characters: Corisco. After so many years developing this project, now I present a 45 minutes performance with animations that mix video with other techniques including photography, drawing, 3D, and 2D animation.
“I don’t choose to be an artist, but sometimes it just happens.”
by Kalma VJ
Madmapper: Tell us about yourself?
Kalma VJ: I´m Kalma, a visualist with a sound engineer background. I use real time processes to create installations, mapping, and vjs sets.
M: You have been giving workshops in Berlin for a while. What do you want yourstudents to learn and what is your challenge?
K: At the moment, I’m working on my next workshop in Berlin. We’ll learn the basics of Modul8 and Madmapper. I´m very excited because the people registered are coming from very different backgrounds, and all of them already have an idea about what they want to learn.
Our exercise will be choosing right types of LED light, recognizing how the video contents map and control LED light, and creating a simple geometric LED lights structure to take away using MadMapper 2.5 Beta with new features, Surface Shaders and more. We also will be showing GarageCube’s new LED light product, and more advanced LED light structure demonstration during this workshop. All students will receive a free 30-day full access of Modul8 and MadMapper.

Place: Mademotion C/ Doctor Fourquet, 3. 1ºB, 28012 Madrid.
The course will be focused on video mapping technique and the concept of projection beyond the screen.
• We developed the imaging technique and its application in installations and performances.
• We teach how to project simultaneously on different surfaces with different motives and moving images as well as the production of content and its practical application.
• We investigated the projected not only as art but as an art form and language image.
Image: Analog and digital (created with video / photo / real-time / code) Projection techniques, real-time and facilities.
Space: analysis of the form / s and creating a blueprint.
Application: Scenic / installation / interactive.

“I simply love Madmapper because it is handy and so precise.” by Jacques-André Dupon
MadMapper: Tell us about yourself? Jacques-André Dupont: I’m Jacques-André Dupont, a French-Colombian AV artist, and performer based in Berlin. I studied media and masters in film post production. After a short experience in the cinema special effects industry in Paris, I decided to develop my activity around motion design and video production for greater creative freedom. After two hard working years in Paris, my new life in Berlin was a bowl of fresh air. I took the time to develop my artistic work and played live visuals in different techno clubs and festivals. I was interested in the interaction between light and matter, how to bring my creations outside the screen, onto tangible surfaces. Since I was following the VJ scene, I was very inspired by the amazing works of some “Daddies” of the video mapping like the 1024 Architecture or AntiVj.
