Who We Are
Cursor began in 2012 as a collaborative effort between Ed Metcalf and Jamie Shaw, with several years of experience in events and fine art respectively.
Ed, owner of Resonant Event Audio Video Ltd. has been a key figure in the festival circuit for several years, designing and running stages at major UK festivals and helping get some of the smaller ones off the ground, along side this, his experience working in the corporate events world is extensive and second-to-none.
Jamie started his visual career out as an abstract painter, and has shown his work across the UK and in Europe, he still actively creates work just for himself, but since discovering the fledgling world of VJing and projection mapping, has increasingly shifted his visual competency into these fields.
"We joined forces to experiment with live visuals and projection mapping. Creating the content for each and every project has been important from the start, and we now work on every visual production aspect to most shows we're involved with, working closely with trusted partners across stage design and build, lighting design and operation, performance and interactivity. Developing our skill-set is important to us, we're always on the lookout for new ways to involve and engage the audience.
Aside from projecting onto walls, trees, custom sets, people, plastic noodles (yes...) and anything else you can point a projector at, we work closely with our clients to make sure a successful narrative or atmosphere is created.
We have a small team of freelance 3D animators, motion and graphic designers to call on when a project demands more hands on deck, and have long-term relationships with people across the spectrum of event design and production disciplines."
