lightrhythm was formed by VJ artists, in 2003, to create experimental video content for live events, and as a visuals label, curating, and remixing, digital video art on DVD. Each DVD utilised multi-angle options – an authoring technique that allowed viewers to switch between the original works and the remixed as they watched.
14 such compilations were released on four continents, showcasing more than 240 lms by 70 leading audiovisual artists from different backgrounds and cultures. To promote this library, we organised launch events in clubs, galleries and cinemas, touring with artists around Europe, the US, Japan and Russia, often designing unique screen systems for custom projection set-ups. The collection continues to be screened at film festivals.
the lightrhythm library is a collection of over 240 films by top audiovisual designers from the US, Japan and the EU, which continues to be screened internationally at high profile film festivals. lightrhythm approached leading artists working within the VJ scene and curated works showcasing different VJ styles. When works were accepted, lrv sought permission for this content to be visually remixed to accompany the releases. This approach was successful in connecting a network of artists from different backgrounds and cultures, encouraging them to collaborate with, and inspire, each other.

After Effects is a central part of our workflow due to its flexibility and compatibility with other softwares. Its the industry recognized software for motion graphics and allows us to composite elements from other software and apply them to complex LED pixel layouts with comparative ease.
Premiere is our main editing tool. We use it to cut video to music or spot footage from rushes. Premiere works in line with After Effects and its possible to cut and paste edits and clips between the two softwares.
in house our workflow incorporates cinema 4d – a powerful 3d software that has become more widely used since its purchase by adobe. we use cinema 4d to create visual contents and 3d virtual environments to pre-visualize your event space.
Illustrator is a powerful vector graphics software which allows you to scale an image to any size without loosing quality. Most logo files come to us in a vector format and through illustrator are directly transferable into our workflow.
Photoshop is an image software that can be used for photo touch ups, collages and mimick painterly techniques with a diverse range of graphic brushes. When we work with illustrators or storyboard photoshop becomes an important skill set in our pallette.
