A little over a week ago, a client of mine showed me this video http://strukt.com/2011/omv-event-projections/ and asked if I could do something like that. After watching the video and cleaning up the spit-take, I politely said that I couldn’t any time soon and why are you asking? The client wanted to pitch something similar to one of their potential clients two days from that time for an upcoming event. While hiring Strukt would seem to be the “correct” thing to do, budgets here aren’t exactly that um… robust. But, if it was actually pitched and was accepted, that would probably have to be the solution.
Since that time, I have been working my way through the tutorials and everything on this site, trying to figure this out but without a “real” mission (meaning: deadline), I’m afraid of losing steam. I’m no fool and I know I couldn’t get proficient enough to make an installation like the video in a few months (or proficient in just about anything for that matter), but I can see that knowing this software would be an asset to my freelancing. So, I am looking for courses that I might take and found this one http://omniversity.madlab.org.uk/booking/?regevent_action=register&event_id=24&name_of_event=vvvv±+Getting+started+and+Projection+mapping
However, before I go off like a mad thing and book flights for across the pond, I thought I’d ask if anyone knows anything about this. There doesn’t appear to be any other workshops or courses happening in the near future, especially here in Canada. While I’m not adverse to having a vacation I can write off somewhere in Europe (or anywhere, for that matter), I would like to feel that it would be money well spent. ~$325Cdn isn’t a lot for a weekend course, if it was somewhere I could drive to, and I would just take a chance on it. It’s the additional travel expenses that give me pause.
So, any advice or suggestions you can give me would be appreciated. This is my first post here so please try to go easy on me! ;)
