Video mapping in 3D

Spectacular festivals in Lugano

In 2012, the City of Lugano wanted to give its citizens a special treat for the holidays.We made two videos, one dedicated to Christmas and one to celebrate the New Year, which were projected onto the facade of City Hall inpiazza della Riformain Lugano and were accompanied every 30 minutes for 15 days by “Christmas in the streets”, a series of initiatives organized by the city to celebrate Christmas. The 3D video mapping performance was staged with Emme, our technology partner for the Swiss territory.

Projection mapping

Is it possible to simplify production?

“The event is next week, we do not know what the structure is or what the set will be like until the last moment.  Can you get something ready?”
How many times have we heard this from the client?
We built a library of content: from graphic games, lights, strobe effects, buildings collapsing, vegetation sprouting  and so on and so forth. Some of our generic graphics can be easily customized with bespoke colours, logos or shapes inspired by the event. Using special software we can map a variety of generic content onto the set, making it seem to move, spin around or disappear completely – with only a day’s notice, if required.
We can also stream live content or project interactive content and map it directly onto the set.
