Projects: Toronto’s Casa Loma Projection-Mapped For Halloween Attraction
October 10, 2016 by Dave Haynes
The Toronto landmark Case Loma, a Gothic Revival-style house that looks like it could be used for a Canadian version of Downton Abbey, has been transformed this month as a projection mapping surface for a Halloween attraction.
It is part of Legends of Horror, an immersive theatrical experience that will take guests more than 1.5 kms through the Casa Loma estate, including the lower gardens and tunnels, including areas not normally available to tourists walking the site.
Toronto’s Big Digital and Liberty Entertainment Group (which rents the former private home) developed a digital projection experience showcased on the historic castle. The concept was two years in the making, and involves 30 production crew members and more than 100 actors (presumably part of the tour, not the projections).
Actually, important to note that Liberty Entertainment Group is Casa Loma’s tenant, not its owner. The Liberty gang can’t tear it down, for example, if they wanted to build something else there.
