White Night Festival – The MetahubFree video workshops and a chance to help create the centrepiece of the Brighton White Night Festival!
Saturday 22nd October 3pm-5pm at Phoenix Brighton, 10-14 Waterloo Place, Brighton, BN2 9NB
The Metahub will be the centrepiece for the White Night festival events in Brighton, UK and Amiens, France. It will transform both locations into a social media driven environments, engaging the public at all levels. Live-streams from many venues and events across the festivals and videos created by members of the public will be brought together through video mapping technology and the work of expert VJs to create a stunning digitally augmented sculpture.
To get involved you need to attend one of our free workshops (details below) and be available to work with us on 29th October in Brighton throughout the evening until 2am. We want you to create video records that capture the atmosphere of the White Night events and bring it to our team of VJs for display on the Metahub sculpture. You can use your mobile phone video camera or small video camera for this. (Please bring relevant download cables).
Learn simple, skills and techniques that will enable you to capture the atmosphere of the White Night Festival and create beautiful videos. Led by experts in their field, you will be guided through experimentation of “in-camera” editing and effects and exploration of the White Night theme of Utopia.
Participants on these workshops will be offered a place on the Metahub Tour during the White Night Festival in Brighton, where you will be guided through the city by one of our performance artists to help us capture it on video on Saturday 29th October 2011.
