Working In The Theatre: Projection Design

The designers at 59 Productions are responsible for creating some of the most incredible projection designs of our time, by creating innovative ways to tell stories, and new ones.  These designers don’t necessarily come from the world of technology, but rather a place where artistic, creative thinking is valued above all else.

Watch as we unfold some of the work and meaning behind the projections of 59 Productions, from their work on War Horse to the Olympic Games opening ceremony and so much more.

“We are never more excited here than when something comes up that we don’t know the answer to.  And that’s where the sparks of energy, the adrenaline comes from, is not knowing whether an idea you just had is going to be possible, if an idea is possible, but knowing you can go out and find the answer to that.” – 59 Productions.
