Architectural Projection Mapping

This post is a slight deviation from the major themes of this blog, but well worth it. I have embedded a couple of videos from Flat-e filmmakers. They specialize in what they call “architectural projection mapping” to project images onto buildings (the two examples below are castles) with stunning effects. The idea is a simple but its execution must be extremely complex to produce such impressive results. It is a great way utilize the exterior of buildings and a lot more exciting than fireworks! The first video is a projection onto Gorey Castle as part of the Branchage Festival.

This second video is just as impressive and was produced to promote the Iron Man 2 soundtrack.  The projection is on to Rochester Castle in Kent.
