Our Resolume Avenue course provides a great overview of what is fast becoming the first-choice tool for people involved in live video. Resolume works in real-time and is therefore fast, easy and fun to use – without losing any of the power of traditional video mixing and processing environments.

We start from the ground up – covering the basics of cabling, setting up your project and getting a signal to to the projector or other video display. We will build our projects during the lesson, beginning with a basic crossfader setup and then moving on to add further complexity.

By the end of our brief course you will have all the knowledge you need to start present video content at live events!

You don't need any previous experience, though some knowledge of how video works and/or experience with a video or audio sequencer is beneficial.

The course tutor Nick Feldman had been following the twin paths of being a graphic designer and an electronic musician until in 2007 he merged the two disciplines and started creating his own live visuals for parties and performances. Since then he has played performed live video for a number of festivals including Glastonbury, Shambala and Boomtown Fair and for renowned artists such as Diplo, 2ManyDJs, Rudimental and Foreign Beggars. He has also worked on creating generative content for his own improvised audio-visual shows.
