This workshop is now sold out.

This is a full day workshop on Sunday February 23 from 10:00AM – 5:00PM and requires a WORKSHOP or WORKS ticket.

Arminas Kazlauskas (Instagram) is an experienced VJ and live music TV and concert touring artist who has worked for the likes of John Legend, Sting, Röyksopp, Roxette, Gus Gus, Kygo and many more. He’s lucky enough to have a day job that’s directly tied to his passion for live visuals, working as a product specialist at Notch.

He’s one of the few people who is licensed to host official Notch training all over the world, from Beijing to Montreal, from Berlin to Los Angeles, and he’ll be your guide as you take your first steps into the world of Notch: the real-time motion graphics tool that was used on 9 out of the top 10 stadium music tours in the US last year.

But Notch is so much more than just for live music; it’s a full motion graphics package, with particles, fluids, procedurals, path tracing and more.


To walk away with a solid foundational knowledge about Notch, how and where to use it, and with a newfound joy in being able to create real-time rendered and interactive content without code.

Target Audience

Designed for creatives interested in motion graphics, interactive installations, live and stage performance with real-time rendered elements and a non-coding approach to these.

Assumed Audience Knowledge

Basic content creation experience is recommended. Some knowledge about working with 3D packages is nice, but not a requirement.

Five Things Audience Members Will Learn

  1. Using post processing effects
  2. Setting up a 3D scene and lighting it
  3. Using the powerful particle engine in Notch
  4. Using modifiers to introduce motion and interactivity
  5. Working with external formats and exporting your work

To Bring (required software, hardware or supplies)

  • Attendees need to bring their own Windows laptop that is Notch compatible, and your copy of Notch Builder Learning (provided as part of the workshop signup) needs to be installed and working before the course starts.
  • We highly recommend that you’ve completed Notch Academy video series before arrival. If you have not, a significant portion of the course will be hard for you to follow.
