Nowadays, it is very easy to find video content that is of very good quality.

This type of cool video is the result of a collaboration between video and projection tools like in a cinema, but with a screen with a complicated structure and not flat like a pile of boxes, buildings, and even a roof.
Several years ago, video projection mapping or commonly known as the art of projecting video mapping onto surfaces such as buildings or walls, to present the illusion of 3D art and motion graphics, was a new art form. Maybe it hasn’t been exposed before because of the constraints of the projection light that is not too strong or inferior to other lights around it. Like it or not, the creator needed help from related parties to turn off the ambient lights for a few minutes.
But now, this head-turning projection is now starting to be popular, and we can easily find it. For example, on music festival sets, product launches, performances, or buildings decorated with beautiful visuals. The created visuals can change according to what is projected.

Even event organizers and company management seem to be competing to present video mapping in their activities.

4. Drive Production – Battersea Power Station
5. Romaintardy – Omicron
