Making performance projection is the deft art of creating images for projection into live performance which will complement the live action without upstaging it. I began working in Powerpoint and Keynote, which are brilliant apps with which to start experimenting in animation for projection, but have since graduated to Adobe Photoshop, After Effects and Premier Pro.
