Bumbershoot is a gem of Seattle stemming back to 1971. Showcasing all things art in the Pacific Northwest scene.  

It was a beautiful thing to see the water fountain lit up everynight with our blend of projection mapping and live video from the Fisher Stage.

This vibrant 3-day gathering had many branches to offer: music performances on many different stages of all genres, various art showcases, comedy, galleries, food, and a wonderful backdrop.

 
 
 

THE PROJECTIONS


The International Fountain is massive and a core component of the Seattle Center. The content need to be top notch.

We took it there by projection mapping a live video feed from the Fisher Stage onto the fine watery surface.

It was spectacular. It was clearly visible from 360º and became a visual landmark for the Festival each night. The near holographic projections also gave a beautiful viewing location for families and others who would like to enjoy the performance with more space.

In addition to the water fountain there was a grove of trees that say the light of night with each leaf contributing to a larger than life visual show.

 

THE FESTIVAL


Each night was packed with a wide range of musical entertainment on the Fisher Green Stage.

We had the pleasure of getting to project amazing live performances from artists such as Andrew Bird, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Explosions in the Sky and a theatrical and truly rock and roll performance by Billy Idol. With all this great music as our muse, our team was more focused than ever testing our skills with new wireless transmission technology and custom made weather proof projector enclosures decorated for the festival.
