EXPERIENTIAL

A 20' x 12' 3D projection mapping surface designed and created by Justin Thompson Visuals for Chicago's top ranked rooftop bar ROOF on theWit. theWall at ROOF on theWit was designed and created by Justin Thompson visuals in late 2012, launching in early in 2013 as a "first ever of-its-kind" in hospitality. Justin Thompson approached owner Scott Greenberg in 2012 with an idea to create a 3D projection mapped wall at one of the top ranked rooftop bars in the entire world. We designed the wall, the system and its content, while Justin VJ'd the installation live performing graphics alongside top DJ performances at the club. 

A building projection mapped ad I designed for Cars.com that ran through the weekend of Jan24-26, 2014 at the NADA convention in New Orleans. Resolution Digital Studios in Chicago brought me in to create this ad with some branding and instruction from their client.

Justin Thompson Visuals and Red Bull bring custom projection mapped visuals to Chicago's CASTLE / Palladium nightclub. JTVisuals created a custom visual package in conjunction with Red Bull, bringing an exciting new visual show to Castle with light Red Bull branding- now the best projection mapped visual show in Chicago. Justin Thompson Visuals has collaborated with Red Bull to bring visual packages like this to select chosen venues in Chicago. This installation can be experienced in the Palladium at Castle, any night the club is open. 

Justin Thompson Visuals provided an exciting visual 4-minute walk-in piece coordinated to DJ White Shadow's music, along with both 2D and 3D mapped background set pieces used throughout the  event. The stage was powered by 4 20k lumen Christie projectors, and the center stage was a transparent scrim used to reveal DJ White Shadow at the end of the intro piece. The media was run through a Green Hippo media server. This event took place on 12-12-2013 at the Chicago Hilton. 

A quick reel of some of the visuals created by Justin Thompson and co-creator DBlock for the permanent 3D projection mapping installation now called "theWall" at ROOF on theWit in Chicago. Justin Thompson Visuals created and implemented this first-of-its-kind in hospitality video mapping installation- co-designing the structure, creating and implementing the system, and creating the graphic content package. The system runs on a dedicated Arkaos Media server with full DMX control of 48 Colorkinetics Colorblast fixtures on the ceiling of the club, which were tied into the template design for the content. Justin crafted the visual installation with a 20k lumen Panasonic projector. The content is controlled with Arkaos Mediamaster and mapped with Arkaos Videomapper and LED Mapper. Justin also VJ'd theWall for its first 6 months in existence.
