Large scale multi projection installations require meticulous planning and the right equipment to get high quality results. While working at Casa Loma in 2015-2016 Livevideoart founder @scottvjguy helped design, install and calibrate multiple permanent projection systems. Before that in 2014 we were also the first ever to do projection mapping on this historic building for #dongoodtequila. See the warping mesh here that helps fit the content tightly to the 3d building surface. Achieved with @avstumpfl vioso wings on a custom build PC media server. —- #livevideoart #livevisuals #3dprojectionmapping #mediaserver #projectionmapping #illumination #lightfestival #themeparks #legendsofhorror #installationart #technician #immersive #vioso #casaloma

Casa Loma started construction in 1911. Working in a designated historical building can be tricky. Many things are actually set in stone and compromise is constantly required to get anything done. Non invasive installation techniques are critical because everything you touch is history. The challenge was worth it because to me it felt like we were representing more than just an event or company. It helps to know the history of a place so if anyone living in Toronto has yet to visit the Casa then I highly encourage it. Built by Sir Henry Pellatt who was Canadas top financier of industry and the General of The Queens Own Rifles. The Gothic Revival style was designed by E.J. Lennox and built by master trades people using fine imported materials from Europe. A big reason for building such a grand mansion was to host royal visits of the King and Queen of england. The place has a interesting history for sure. Many movies and shows are filmed here and it was even a base for our military intelligence spy group during WW2. My Mother brought me here as a kid a lot because we lived just below the hill house in Toronto's Annex neighborhood so it felt strangely like home when I worked there and got to know every inch of the place. Its like I have some odd connection with historical sites . I used to live in one and have worked at several now. ———- #livevideoart #historicalbuilding #toronto #torontonightlife #canadianhistory #casaloma #productiondesign #projectionmapping #eventdesoign #castle #canadascastle #canada150🇨🇦 #canada150 #mediaserver #filmlocation #stockfootage #themepark #immersive #experience #hollywoodnorth #vioso #sgp360 #aerial #drone #areialphotography

More from the Casa archive, Legends Of Horror 2016~ Developing projection systems across a location as large as Casa Loma required a wide range of equipment and techniques. We used aerial drone photos and digital photogrametry to make the 3d casa model template for projection effects. A variety of speciality projection rigs were needed to cover the expansive live walkthrough shows. It was a great learning experience working under and along side some really talented people at Liberty Entertainment and EMD shows. It hepled make clear to me the way forward for my projection mapping services. ———— #photogrametry #projectionmapping #livevideoart #casaloma #productionlife #mediaserver #projectormount #installation #themepark #experiential #theatertech #livedesign #3dprojectionmapping #barcoprojectors #optomaprojectors #fabrication #casedesign #installationdesign #videoprojectionmapping #3dscan #buildingscan #drone #photosynth #casioprojectors #realityscan #newmediaart #newmedia #casaloma
