What is Projection Advertising?

Projection advertising – also known as a projection billboard or street projection, – is the act of projecting still or moving imagery onto a building, landmark or landscape, for advertising purposes.  Projection advertising often takes a more measured approach than guerrilla projection and is usually part of a broader marketing campaign. It’s important to note that although it is not illegal to project onto the façade of any building without permission (apart from a few notable exceptions), Double Take Projections can assist in securing the appropriate permissions on behalf of clients, ahead of activation.

Many of Double Take Projections’ clients opt for this service for example; to promote a new product in an interesting location, relevant to the target market, or to advertise an upcoming event – or perhaps even to spread awareness of an essential message to the public.

The scale that can be gained with projection advertising is remarkable and transcends the impact that a more traditional advertising method could achieve.  The nature of projection advertising means that the client can choose their canvas, from waterfalls to aeroplanes – there’s a world full of possibilities!

This service can be used for a quick activation, or applied over a prolonged time period to gain footfall exposure, as well as images for press and promotion.  It is also possible to advertise at multiple sites in a single night, reaching a variety of audiences.

Capturing Projections and Time-Lapse Technique

Double Take Projections photographers and videographers are experienced in capturing projections, within a vast array of environments. Projection advertising provides robust and striking imagery, which can be a powerful vehicle for any campaign. The team also documents audience reaction, which provides engaging content and captures the ambience of the event. In addition to real-time filming, Double Take Projections has developed expertise in time-lapse photography, which can be incredibly emotive and compelling. Double Take Projections time-lapse technique involves projecting video content at a massively reduced speed. The projections are filmed and then sped back up to normal speed in post-processing. This process produces a stunning visual, showing the landscapes, clouds and stars glistening in the background at a significantly faster pace.
