Will Duke is a video artist, filmmaker and projection designer based in the UK. Will studied Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing and at the Glasgow School of Art. As a visual artist he has exhibited throughout the UK and internationally. His video work is part of museum and gallery collections in Scotland, Norway and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Since 2009 Will has been working as a projection designer for Contemporary Dance and Theatre. He is involved with stage productions from early design meetings through to opening nights and beyond. He collaborates closely with writers, directors, choreographers and other designers to realise their visions for each production, bridging the technical and aesthetic elements of a production through a specialised working knowledge of AV delivery systems and a strong, unique artistic vision.
Will works across theatre and dance and also within contemporary music and visual art installation. He has a deep working knowledge of photography, digital animation, motion graphics and digital film techniques and is passionate about cinema, visual culture and the ever evolving possibilities for the integration of the moving image into live perfomance.
Recent collaborators include Simon McBurney, John Fulljames, Melanie Wilson, Natalie Abrahami, non zero one, Fevered Sleep, Unlimited Theatre, Coney, Douglas Rintoul, and Ben Duke.
Will is represented by Helen Mumby at Macnaughton Lord Representation.
