What is Projection Mapping

Projection mapping, which is commonly referred to as building projection 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 an environment or object by projecting from different angles onto a variety of canvases. Projection mapping can create beautiful illusions with moving images, which captivate live audiences and leave them with a memorable impression of an event.

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.

Why Projection Mapping

Projection mapping can be an incredibly moving way of bringing untold stories to light and used to transform the most unexpected spaces into the most stunning of canvases. Projection mapping can celebrate the history of a place, bring communities together and take art and design outwith the traditional confines of a gallery space, for the public to enjoy.

Using projection mapping is a unique and memorable way of approaching an advertising brief and marketing a product or event. Double Take Projections are expert in creating immersive installations, and experiential marketing stunts that stops audiences in their tracks and heightens user engagement with a brand or product.

The magnitude that can be achieved with projection 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.

Our Projection Mapping Process

Double Take Projections have developed systems and processes to ensure maximum efficiency. 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, we produce an unwrapped front elevation of the building acting as a design template. Next, the team story-boards the desired project narrative and conducts research. The team then often work with a script-writer, to develop a strong narrative that runs through all mediums of the project.

Using 2D animation techniques, 3D software, green screen videography and motion graphics, Double Take Projections produces creative shows that dazzle audiences. The studio has an extensive kit list and can provide or acquire any projection and AV equipment required. We have a team of video technicians that will install the equipment and line it up to the contours of the building. During the event, an in-house photographer or videographer films and photographs the show, to create a legacy of the project.
