March Break saw another theme event for the kids and family at Casa Loma and we created a Medieval knights and dragons visual experience in combination with other exhibits and demonstrations and performances around the castle. I was asked again to create a projection mapping effect for the room we have set up at the end of the tunnel.
This time I had nothing to go on except a vague style guide and some stock content the client requested . I ended up creating a full 3D castle scene and added flying dragon that put the viewers inside Â and on top of a story book castle while the fearsome dragon fly by and then the Hero returns at the gates to fight another day. Â The animations were very simple but cartoony and light so it looked good, the 3d motion and sound assisted making Â convincing and impressive effect.
I ended the scene with some great flaming wall sconces filling the room. I used them throughout the tunnel as well adding to the medieval atmosphere projecting into just the right places with our mini projectors on the articulating arm mounts.
