Ian is a video designer, editor, animator and director, who creates all kinds of videos and projections for live performance.

His work invites audiences to use their imagination to complete the illusion, rather than merely sit back and watch. He tends towards hand-drawn or stylised work to engage the audience, and he’s in his element as a film maker, using live-action camera or specific video techniques to bring the audience into the show.

Ian thrives on projects that let him step out from the computer to play and invent with performers.
