Dick Straker believes a new generation of video designers is waiting to burst onto the stage
, and it will change things in ways we cannot yet imagine.
"Ten years ago people like myself were just dabbling in this technology, now students consciously choose to be video designers for theatre
," he says.
"I see a difference in these twenty-somethings, digital technology is completely integrated into their lives, they are a different breed and their relationship to the medium is different."
The incumbent crop of video designers is already experimenting with the kind of tools this new generation will have at its disposal.
