Samhain is an ancient Pagan festival which celebrates the beginning of winter, it is more commonly celebrated around Halloween. The tradition of beckoning the souls of those passed was something the client wanted to take inspiration from. They also wanted utilise the features the lands provided. One such feature was the ruin of St. Oliver Plunkett's Church, which was a central focus point on site.
Our idea was to Projection Map St. Oliver Plunkett's church and create ghastly content to capture the festival's imagination.
We created a 3D digital model of the church and mapped each and every brick. Our animators went wild creating ghosts, ghouls and all sorts of characters that revived the ruins and gave them a new lease of life.
You can preview some of this project in the SLIPDRAFT SHOWREEL above.
