Factory Light Festival is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to see our Limelight Academy Projection Mapping Masterclass applicants showing their artworks to a crowd of locals and art fans from around the world on the amazing concrete silos of the beautiful city of Slemmestad.
“Education should be free – work should be paid for”
There is a growing number of mapping contests all around the world with different structures and money prize pools. What is common in almost all of them is that they only pay artists for their work in case they win the contest. There’s no professional help or specific education for projection mapping that is for experienced animators entering the contests who have no or limited knowledge and experience in projection mapping, especially outdoors and in large scale.
How can a projection mapping artwork look as good as the animation looking on screen?
As a beginner in video mapping you’ll ask this question often and might go a long way to get to the answer. You can create the best 3d animation ever and it might not look like the way you had on your screen at all. The other day you go and give it a try on a different surface with a different projector and with an animation content that is just really simple and it works much better.
