Who this course is for:

Engineer by profession, Creator by heart.
I have been passionate about projection mapping for a while. Sadly there is not enough material out there about the topic and the methods used are expensive e.g Adobe After Effect $635/year.
I aim to make this fantastic technique used by big corporations like Disney accessible to the public by:
1. Making all required knowledge accessible within a couple of hours.
2.. Using completely free software so that there are no future expenses
So venture in, learn something unique.
