I was asked late last year to produce some motion graphics for a projection mapping installation at Leeds Castle. This would be part of a wider animation illustrating the battle of Agincourt — which has its six hundredth anniversary later this year.
The animation forms the intro and outro to the show. Starting above a cloud obscured map of Europe the camera plunges in past a compass, through the grid lines, down through the clouds and in to the main places associated with Henry V’s journey to the battle.
Particular attention needed to be paid to the constraints of the four projector system. These included: keeping the movement slow enough to not disorientate an audience that would be looking down at the ‘screen’, keeping large patches of colour from overlapping between the different projectors and, not least, ensuring that the whole thing could be rendered out at a higher than 4K resolution.
