Use filters like a pro and get ready for the Bal Masqué
With the use of software like Zoom, OBS and Snap Camera, we can create our own virtual backgrounds, digital masks, video compilations and even perform live coding and VJ sets. In this workshop we delve into the colorful world of filters, guided by performing artists Yun Lee and Jonathan Reus from iii.
We will be using Snap Camera and Lens Studio. Participants will go through the basics of how to import custom images, animations and 3D models into your filter, working with face and body meshes, creating interactions, and building a performance around these elements. To make the most of your time, come prepared with sketches of specific movements and affects you would like to work with.
Spots for the workshop are limited.

And don’t miss the chance to show off what you have learned at the Bal Masqué on Saturday 11 September!
Over the past two years, a big part of our life has moved to virtual spaces. We learned to live, meet, work and celebrate online. In the Bal Masqué, we explore these new virtual environments as spaces for creativity, shared experiences, identity building, collectivity and fun.
