Projects: Welsh Library Projection-Mapped For Christmas

December 17, 2014 by Dave Haynes


This is an eye-popping 10-minute projection-mapping show put together by London’s Projection Studio as a Christmas celebration in a main square of Barry, in Wales. It was bankrolled by the local council. If you stick to the end you’ll see it was a prequel to the turning on of the town Christmas lights.

Nicely done,and you can see a couple of things of technical interest:

1 – animation is limited in spots, which would have saved big both on budget and turnaround time;

2 – buildings with different tones are challenging – with the lighter stone making for a far better lighting canvas than the brick sections.

Best projection mapping canvas I’ve seen was the white marble walls of an Abu Dhabi mosque.
