Giving thousands of partygoers a visual show that will blow their minds

For minimal/house collective New Dutch School I created visuals to be shown behind and around the DJ’s playing during parties. Together with a friend we made physical 3D objects and used projection mapping to beam layered movies on top of the physical object to create a false illusion of the physical shape changing.

When dealing with 3D shapes I created and animated 3D models in Maya and Cinema4D and layered those on top of the physical object through a beamer, combined with 2D animations and different layer effects the visuals would never look the same throughout the night.

New Dutch School became quite popular so we had to think of a way to be able to make the visuals faster and easier to manage. We designed various shapes of 3D objects that could be detached and combined with each other and split up our visuals per object. This allowed us to give a fresh look to the visuals every time we threw a new party.

The visuals change throughout the party, depending on the DJ, the mood and intensity of the music. Most of the performances were live-streamed and put on youtube.
