Test Run
Pre-Production

Due to the massive mapping work to keystone setup was done in a simple and proven 2D workflow. Mapping the whole area took two nights.

"Zoetropolis" from mammaSonica/IT was performed in August 2015. The audience was overwhelmed by this videomapping clip. Up to today it is presented during universal lectures as an exemplary way to handle locations with a challenging and difficult history.
