Monster Media 3D illuminated the façade of West Virginia’s capitol building from June 20 to 22 with 3D projection for the celebration of the state’s sesquicentennial, or 150 year, anniversary.   

Partnering with the West Virginia Sesquicentennial Commission, Monster Media 3D developed the show witnessed by more than 80,000 viewers over its three night run. Content was creating using a combination of  Maxon Cinema 4D, Autodesk MotionBuilder, Autodesk Maya 3D, Autodesk Softimage, and Adobe CS6 Production Suite. Six Barco HDF-W26 projectors, a coolux Pandoras Box Player Pro, and Crestron HD-RX3 / HD-TX3 HDMI-over-fiber video extenders were part of the onsite system.

The 3D projection experience was developed and executed by the Monster Media 3D team, including CCO Jack Hattingh, VP creative Alan Demafiles, director of operations Mike Sandrin, project engineer James Laurino, operations manager Lindsey Fuller, and coolux technician Jake Zobrist.

“When people are captivated like they were in West Virginia, they will never forget the experience,” said Hattingh. “This is important and a crucial factor to why building projections are here to stay. It is most certainly a useful tool for brand building and extremely entertaining at that.”
