Obscura Digital 7 Channel display of HD mapped back onto outdoor plaza

So this was a really sweet project. Ricky and the boys hoisted 5 20K Christies up to the 4th floor balcony overlooking the plaza. The other two were stacked away on the ground and off at a 40 degree angle from the smaller building.

The media we created was designed to work directly with the architecture and synchronized to a music track created by our own Alex Oropeza. Some of the new guys did some really amazing work with the media, and the FireFrame software did the trick by synchronizing and blending all the projectors and fitting it perfectly with the old SF Mint building.

The project was commissioned by one of our clients, McAfee, who are great to work with and really creative.

Anyway, the project was amazing and may tour. Dunno.

Officially Blogging from the sky

Alright, so this is not really a "blog", because i dont update it daily or whatever defines a blog, but today, I blog! Currently at 35,000 feet over Denver (thanks to $12.95 and gogointernet) with thunderstorms making this the bumpiest ride ever, the flight attendents have been strapped in for an hour now, so I am going to take this opportunity to blog from the sky. I may even Tweet later, but that is still to be decided.

The reason for the post is because I am just returning from NYC having worked with Google/Youtube Creative Labs, Michael Tilson Thomas and the YTSO to create the first surround projection classical symphony at Carnegie Hall. Check it out. This piece is by Mason Bates. Gotta watch it in HD.

We used 8 Projectors to cover the entire inside of the hall, which has never been done before. The result was stunning. We designed all the visuals to accompany the music conducted by MTT.

Here is Flight of the Bumble Bee in SD. Ill post HD was great..
