About the Course Tutor

The course is taught by Angeline Ferguson, Video Design Lecturer at Guildhall School.

Angeline has been designing video projection for live events since the early 90s. She started VJ-ing in raves and clubs using an assemblage of film and video projectors. Her raw scratch collage style inspired many collaborations with artists, writers, poets and musicians working in live performance.

She has worked as Video Designer on multiple large and small-scale theatre productions, including several site-specific productions with Boilerhouse Theatre Co and a stage production with percussionist Evelyn Glennie. In 2009 she completed an MA in 3D Computer Animation at Glasgow School of Art. More recently she has worked with Aardman Animation, BBC Learning, Tate Galleries and History Royal Palaces.

Angeline is based in East London where she has a studio in the Silver Building.
