Rhett sez, "This is what happens when you point 7 HD projectors on a building for advertising. Make the real world look like a video game."
The old mint in downtown SF painted by 7 perfectly mapped HD projectors.
crossreference: The band Tipsy and Obscura Digital. For real!
first i thought it was cool. then i saw the logo. then i realized my friends did this. fuk yeah! go obscura!
When will someone finally harness this technology to make it appear that giant monsters are destroying a city?
Love the projection x 3d mapping.
The balls bouncing off the windows look insane.
Here’s more of that type of stuff, if you’re into it:
The new Mint is mostly used for exterior shots for prison porn movies.
It looks awesome on video. Unfortunately, when you’re there, there’s usually a lot of ambient light completely drowning out the projectors.
So unless this is being done in a sufficiently dark area, the effect is totally lost.
Still, the video’s are amazing and I admire the creativity!

Finest acid trip visuals ever.
Some of the sections are very reminiscent of the work of artist Pablo Valbuena:
