What Is Projection Mapping?

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.

Our Projects

Clowes Pavilion

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 47x31 foot LED ceiling and also provided training to the museum staff to run the hardware.

Merry Prairie Holiday

To elevate Conner Prairie’s annual Merry Prairie Holiday event, Blockhouse Studios, the elite projection mapping company in the midwest, reimagined the beloved Christmas tale ’Twas the Night Before Christmas, and projected this retelling onto the historic Conner House. The project featured stop motion animation of custom paper cutouts and traditional 2D animation to bring this classic Christmas story to life. Two 15,000 lumen projectors and three 8,000 lumen projectors were situated both outside of the building to project onto the 3d mapped exterior, and inside for rear projecting onto the windows. Crowds returned specifically to rewatch the spectacle outside the Conner House allowing Conner Prairie to exceed their revenue goals for the event.

Columbus, IN Bicentennial

For the Bartholomew County Bicentennial Celebration, Blockhouse Studios created a ten minute projection show on the historic Ulrich Block Building. Working closely with local businesses in the City of Columbus, we were able to incorporate numerous shops, companies and people from Columbus' rich history over the last 200 years. From Cummins Headquarters to Bartholomew County's local residents, we were able to highlight the things that make Columbus so unique. Paying special attention to historical context, we included radios, TVs, and clothing manufactured in Columbus from each of the individual eras. Using seven 15,000 lumen Epson projectors we fully mapped and programmed the show.
