Video mapping is growing in popularity in the corporate world and I have seen some stunning conference openers using a virtual set that the speakers walk on to.
To give a quick insight into some of the skills behind mapping take a look at the making of “Box” in 2013. The creators of this piece mix design, story telling and technology. Box shows a man engaging with a morphing Box and is achieved using a couple of robots, Bot and Dolly. This is video mapping at its most technically complex.

The making of Willow’s Sweater. Singer Pieter-Jan Van Den Troost opens doors that are not really there, and trots on the spot down imaginary stairs. This is sort of video mapping that could be on stage. So if you are a Speaker with a burning desire to interact with your product in front of a live audience. Get in touch.
