Pilot Freight Services is a full-service global transportation and logistics company.
Serving as the content delivery system for Pilot’s 2013 multiday annual meet up and award ceremony, we created an immersive projection mapping installation. The scope of the project required us to design the set, animations, and video mapping system.
Utilizing the most basic unit of Pilot’s business, shipping crates, we designed a 76 foot set to be flexible for an array of live and preproduced content. The set—a canvas for illusion—occasionally appeared as the shipping crates it was, but more often a constant changing scenery. A 3d file of the set design was provided to the fabrication team, who built the set to an eighth inch accuracy.
The content creation deliverables included opening/closing sequences, company history overview, and ambient/environmental sequences. Air, ocean and ground, Pilot’s three modes of transportation, were represented throughout all content. We designed a transit line system to correlate with each transportation mode.
Arriving on location, Atlantic City’s Borgata, we had 48 hours to calibrate the 6 HD projectors, map the set and prepare for showtime.
