Vision Mechanics - Dragon Matrix Work Experience!

During September I was working for Vision Mechanics on their show Dragon Matrix as an Assistant Prop Maker.

Vision Mechanics are one of Scotland's most prestigious theatre production companies and are the creators behind such incredible events as the Big Man Walking, Giants in the forest and Embrace. Dragon Matrix is the first show in Scotland to combine Augmented Reality Technology with live theatre. Set in Monikie County park, the show will bring the forest alive with 3D fairies, trolls, goblins and hovering flies. As well as the incredible 3D creatures visitors will also find many other magical interactive installations throughout the forest including a fairy village, dragon museum, spirit of the dragon, red witch tree and much much more!

I felt very privileged and honored to work with such incredible artists and learnt so much from my experience working with such an established theatre company. During my time as an assistant prop maker I helped to make all the fairy houses for the fairy village instillation. I also helped with creating props for the Dragon Museum and used my electrical knowledge to wire lights for the event.

I was so delighted and exited to work for Vision Mechanics, I gained so much practical experience and there wasn't a day that went by where I wasn't using my hands to make something. As an aspiring prop maker, I couldn't have asked for much more!
