Ion Goes Culture Crazy!

As 2018 was their 10th anniversary, Culture Night Belfast wanted to mark the occasion with something truly special. They approached us in August to discuss the possibility of projection mapping the front of St. Anne’s cathedral, right in the heart of Belfast’s cathedral quarter. After meeting representatives from Culture Night and their main sponsor, PowerNI, the plan was formulated to create a show which comprised of three sections; Culture Night and what it’s all about, PowerNI’s connection to Belfast through the past 80 years, and finally the theme of Love and Culture Night’s 10th birthday celebrations. After a short period of storyboarding and amendments, the final show was agreed upon and the animating started to happen. The show was created using a combination of Adobe Photoshop, After Effects and Cinema4D by our in house creative content producer, Cormac Connaughton. The projection hardware used were Ion Solutions’ own Christie Digital new Boxer 30k ansi lumens 4k resolution projectors, programmed and calibrated by one of our AV technicians, Glenn Hynes. The event took place on the 21st September 2018 and was enjoyed by thousands of people who filled Writer’s Square in the city centre
