X Media Lab Film

X MediaLab, the internationally acclaimed digital media think-tank came to Bath last month to run one of their globe-trotting Digital workshops. They invited us to live-draw to add some texture and creativity to entertain delegates. We drew on iPads and the drawings were projected onto the walls inside the Ballroom of the world famous Assembly Rooms where Jane Austen would have danced – to a different iTune of course Mr Darcey. Shot by Joe Brown, directed by Simon Deshon at The Creative Federation.
