  2. A quick reel of some of the visuals created by Justin Thompson and co-creator DBlock for the permanent 3D projection mapping installation now called "theWall" at ROOF on theWit in Chicago.

    Justin Thompson Visuals created and implemented this first-of-its-kind in hospitality video mapping installation- co-designing the structure, creating and implementing the system, and creating the graphic content package.

    The system runs on a dedicated Arkaos Media server with full DMX control of 48 Colorkinetics Colorblast fixtures on the ceiling of the club, which were tied into the template design for the content. Justin crafted the visual installation with a 20k lumen Panasonic projector. The content is controlled with Arkaos Mediamaster and mapped with Arkaos Videomapper and LED Mapper.

    Justin also VJ'd theWall for its first 6 months in existence.

    Justin Thompson Visuals has since moved on from theWit seeking new exciting projects and projection mapping installations.

My name is Justin Thompson, I am a Chicago-based visual artist and motion designer who most recently created a first-of-its-kind permanent 3D projection mapping installation at ROOF on theWit hotel in Chicago from the ground up- acting as resident VJ and content creator, lending in designing the structure and integration of the system. Prior to my work at theWit, I acted as lead editor and motion designer at an ad agency in Chicago doing commercial, corporate and event work. Justin spent 7 years touring with rock bands Fall Out Boy and Blink-182 designing and running stage content, shooting and editing music videos and daily web content, and shooting photography. He spent another 5 years creating graphic content packages and daily photo and video content for the annual Honda Civic Tour.
