High Street Records Artist Showcase

Producer/Projection Designer

I lead my club Next Level Audio & Visuals to create and execute audio reactive projection visuals based on Artist's musical & visual style for a showcase event in Kumler Chapel. I coordinated with the organization high street records, organized meetings to communicate visions and progress, and paired each member of our club with an artist best suited with their skill and visual aesthetic. I also created visuals for one of the artists myself using After Effects and Touch Designer.
