The Scottish Maritime Museum in Irvine is housed within the vast, glass-roofed Victorian Linthouse. This A listed ‘cathedral of engineering’ was formerly the Engine Shop of Alexander Stephen and Sons shipyard in Govan before being salvaged and relocated to Irvine in 1991. Our projection was part of a bigger event, working alongside breathtaking aerial acrobatics and an extraordinary light shows.
Over the four nights, 15,000+ attendees from all over Ayrshire delighted in the festivities. The event was a real success, with audiences continuing to interact on social media, long after the event had culminated.
We used 2 x 16,000 lumen projectors to light up the building with a custom creative beamed from our projection trailer, mapped to the contours of the building using Madmapper software.
“Steven and David worked with us on the creation of a bespoke shipbuilding-inspired projection for the Scottish Maritime Museum’s Illumination: Harbour Festival of Light. From the first enquiry through to the final delivery Double Take Projections were fantastic- easy to work with, approachable and great at bringing their own creative twist to the overall result. Their work brought our Museum’s photographic collection to life, allowing many visitors to enjoy, engage and reminisce with our objects in a new creative way.”
