What is Projection Mapping

Projection mapping, which is commonly referred to as building projection, video mapping or street projection, is a form of lighting design and technology which allows the team to project and skew imagery to fit the contours of a surface at a phenomenal scale.

This technique lends itself particularly well to projects that benefit from bold impact, and considerable scope – the flexibility and capabilities of projection mapping technology are vast.

Double Take Projections use high powered projection equipment to animate any surface using light. In essence, the team can radically alter the character of buildings or objects by projecting at different angles onto a variety of canvases. A projection mapping specialist can create beautiful illusions with moving images, which captivate live audiences and leave them with a memorable impression of an event.

Creating a Buzz Around Your Brand

Video projection has a long history but has experienced a surge in popularity and accessibility in recent years. Most commonly, we see the technology being used to transform entire historic building façades or public spaces into art on a vast scale.

Projection mapping is highly versatile and can enhance a myriad of different projects and events; such as art installations and exhibitions, historical celebrations, experiential marketing projects and guerrilla advertising stunts. Let us create a buzz around your brand that is otherwise only achieved through a large advertising budget.

Flat video projection with video projectors is becoming substandard, and in order to tantalize large audiences, 3D projection mapping with multiple projectors is the preferred option.

Projection mapping has the ability to take an object such as a building, and project onto its walls with absolutely no distortion to the display images. Often site-specific, the best projection mapping project will succeed by enhancing rather than erasing the architecture.

Why Projection Mapping

The projection mapping technique can be an incredibly moving way of bringing untold stories to light and used to transform the most unexpected spaces into the most stunning canvas or screen.

Projection mapping can celebrate the history of a place, bring communities together and take art and design out of the traditional confines of a gallery space, for the public to enjoy. Moreover 3D projection mapping software has the potential to enhance any building location or surface, and if you are creative you can bring any space to life, for any need!

Using projection mapping is a unique and memorable way of approaching an advertising brief and marketing a product or event that is sure to leave a lasting impression. Double Take are expert in creating immersive installations, and experiential marketing stunts in a real environment; stopping audiences in their tracks and heightening user engagement with a brand or product.

Not only does dynamic 3D projection mapping engage audiences but it can also immerse them within the projections. Providing the area is big enough, you can map any wall or surface into moving pieces of art that will leave an audience in disbelief. And when you do that, you are leaving a lasting impact on them.

Team Up with a Projection Mapping Specialist

3D projection mapping has completely evolved since its first outings in the early 2000s when its purpose was to project visual-art and enhance live-music shows. Although it is still used for that, it can now be used by artists and production companies to incorporate the telling of entire stories; by using animated visuals and music to produce cinema style effects, action and narratives onto any object.

We have found it is particularly useful and engaging when used for product launches. A lot of companies are now seeing the benefits of video mapping, and product launches are just one of the many reasons to use this technique.

The magnitude achieved with projection mapping is spectacular and surpasses the limits of conventional approaches to exhibition and advertising. Projection mapping is a very flexible and mobile medium – Double Take Projections can activate a projection just about anywhere – quickly and efficiently with maximum impact to your audience.

Take your advertising campaigns to new heights, gain your brand positive recognition and transform environments with our highly advanced, 3D projection mapping service.

Our Projection Mapping Process

Our team at Double Take Projections have developed systems and processes to ensure maximum efficiency. All you need to create a stunning spectacle is a piece of inspiration – an idea. Even if the planning process for your event is already in effect, it is still possible to use projection mapping. In order to minimise costs and maximise creativity and collaboration, however, try and plan your projection mapping as far in advance as possible.

Once commissioned for a piece of work, a full site survey is carried out, and with the use of photogrammetry models and the latest 3D laser scanning equipment, Our projection mapper will produce an unwrapped front elevation of the structure acting as a design template. Next, the team story-boards the desired project narrative and conducts research. The team then often works with a scriptwriter, to develop a strong narrative that runs through all mediums of the project.

Using 2D animation techniques, 3D projection mapping software, green screen videography and motion graphics, Double Take Projections produces imaginative shows that dazzle audiences. The studio has an extensive kit list and can provide or acquire any mapping projector and Audio Visual equipment required. From our point of view, the more equipment, and high capability equipment at that, the more we can bring your interactive idea to life.

Our high quality projectors, mapping software and head light fixtures are carefully installed and set up by our fastidious mapping project team. We have a team of experienced video technicians that install the equipment and line it up to the contours of the construction on the three dimensional object. Then during the event, an in-house photographer or videographer films and photographs the show, to create a legacy image of the project.

We aim to create immersive experiences and to make every future event a long lasting memory in the minds and hearts of the audience. Projection mapping is not just a selling piece, it is a live artwork and illusion designed to impress!
