Projection mapping is a video projection technique in which video footage is mapped onto a surface, turning common objects – such as buildings, runways, stages and even water – into astonishing displays. These surfaces become a canvas, playing off the surface’s shape and textures to create a delightful experience of light and illusion.
For Harvest Nights 2020 Blockhouse Studios created a fully original, nine minute projection mapped show on the historic Lilly House. Our team worked directly with Newfields leadership to understand the history of the Lilly House; and built a show encompassing many historical elements such as the Three Graces, the original rooms of the home, era-accurate characters and much more. Using six 15,000 lumen projectors and four 20,000 lumen projectors we fullymapped and programmed the entire structure to run for the whole month of October.View More
In 2020, Blockhouse Studios was brought in to reimagine the Clowes Pavilion at Newfileds IMA musuem. We helped select the technologies to be integrated into the room, and selected three local contractors to work with to accomplish the installation. We managed the contractors throughout the entirety of installation and integration. Blockhouse developed the concepts for the original content, produced and created all the imagery, including original fluid art, cinematography, and other digital assets. Blockhouse created the control system for the 50x30 foot LED ceiling and also provided training to the museum staff to run the hardware.View More
