Huge thanks to everyone who took part in our Light Labs. These were attended by about 140 people throughout eight locations all over Shetland. All ages came, from three years old to eighty plus. We have a "mobile" media lab, which meant everyone could record short films using our “easy peezie” Flip Camcorders. Emma and Roxane showed everyone how to use these and then helped everyone to edit their films using iMovie on one of our MacBooks. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed seeing how Nayan translated their films into moving coloured light by using Pharos software. This software programme is a free download from the Internet, so some of the folk who began learning how to use it can continue if they like. We’ll use all the clips to form the Mirrie Dancers illuminations throughout Shetland this winter.
