Emergence (2013) Obscura and Exploratorium

Here is a little teaser for an event that is happening at nightfall on April 17th and 18th at the historic Pier 15 in San Francisco. If I were in town on those dates, I’d be there for sure. The video below shows the behind the scenes footage of a projection mapping event that is being built by Obscura Digital. The company fabricated ten miniature replicas of the Exploratorium’s façade at Pier 15, and then filmed a vivid array of non-computer generated, real-life visualizations for the projection map.

The thing I like about this film is how it shows just how much prep work and time goes into a project like this. If you do anything with motion graphics or CGI you already know. Just in case your boss or client doesn’t, show them this.
