ZONES Opening Video and Motion Graphics

Zones Inc., a global tech company located in the Seattle area wanted to communicate new developments at their yearly Partner Summit.  They approached Mind Opera with a special opportunity to develop rich and dynamic visuals to the theme of “Amplify”.    We produced media that took advantage of the venues many screens, like a looping walk-in segments, a powerful opening video, speaker intros and multiple motion graphics pieces that conveyed the excitement and energy of the event.   With the use of WATCHOUT as a video delivery tool, we were able to control the video across the multiple screens and deliver a seamless experience for the audience.   Our client Zones was happy with the impact and their audience was “Amplified” about the message.

Simple projection mapping adds wow!

Projection mapping has become a hot word in Audio Visual industry.  Whether it is a permanent installation or a live event, it is exciting to watch a building or an object come to life and can elicit some wow moments.  Mind Opera has been using the technique to add visual interest to more and more projects.  It adds a lot of texture and visual interest without skyrocketing the cost of adding multiple projectors.  Even on a simple projection mapping project (seen photos below) we spend time preparing graphics and video to fit closely to the multiple screens, while still allowing wiggle room for on-site adjustments as the actual installation will never be perfect.  The next step is to adjust the projection to fit the screen sets, then using some vibrant green we begin to perfectly fit the projection to the smaller screens.  It took about 5 hours to complete these screens, but the results are more interesting than a standard screen and adds a wow factor to the overall look.
