For live events / conferences / concerts / awards ceremonies we can provide live cameras, vision mixing and projections.
From early on in the planning stages of your event you need to think about what your screens will show and when. Presentations, logo loops and title screens must be planned well in advance. We can help design your screens and work with you to make your show run smoothly. Your event can be also be recorded and edited later for promotional uses.
Here is a link to a useful PDF resource for those planning to do a presentation.
Video Installations & Lighting Projects
Another part of our business is providing video and unusual light installations for corporate events.
For part of the ‘House of Imagination’ project for The Peter Pan Trust at Moat Brae house in Dumfries. It was for the launch of the trusts Youth Forum and they where looking for an alternative experience in the basement of the house. As it was a dark set of rooms I was asked to fill them with various video projections that had some relevance to the house and the story of Peter Pan. I had come up with the idea of a floating picture gallery but instead of still images I manipulated the images to add video backgrounds and aspects to each one. It was an unusual project that we have since repeated for Moat Brae.
One Art Please Project
Purplebox Productions were asked by Dumfries and Galloway College to provide an installation for a ‘dark space’ in Moat Brae during the HND Art and Design event.
This installation consists of photo flash umbrellas and video projection and was an experiment (for us) in making video masks. Various pieces of video from our own archive, found and stock video clips are used to create the piece. The mask was digitally ‘painted’ onto the umbrellas using paint software some days ago then superimposed over the edited video track to remove the video from the surrounding walls.
The ambient music accompanying the installation includes extracts from the albums “Sounds from a Dying Village”, “Osaeris – The White Cube” and “Six Notes Part 3”.
This is the short promotional video from the two days that shows the students work and our installation.
