Queen's Diamond Jubilee

disguise projects huge video images on Buckingham Palace as part of the Diamond Jubilee Concert

To celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, a huge concert was staged in front of Buckingham Palace, London. A highlight in a string of festivities nationwide, the event featured a vast range of high-profile artists including Kylie, Robbie Williams, Stevie Wonder, Sir Elton John, Madness and Sir Paul McCartney.

An innovative crown shaped stage was built around the Queen Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace, with a spectacular lighting, projection and firework show to celebrate the event.

Treatment Studios were hired by the BBC to produce the content to be projected onto Buckingham Palace during the highlight of the live Jubilee concert. Sam Pattinson, Creative Director of Treatment Studios, has a long-standing relationship with disguise, having used it on U2 tours as well as Elton John and Take That. Pattinson mentions that disguise is Treatment Studio’s preferred system to work with, due to its abilities to accurately simulate the event in 3D before even going on-site.

Using 36 20K Barco HD projectors, provided by XL Video UK, disguise provided the video mapping and playback, of video on the Palace. The show as a whole was directed by show designer Durham Marenghi, with architectural lighting provided by Neg Earth.

A laser scanner was used to create a highly accurate 3D model of the building and then prepared by 3D modeler and artist Nils Porrmann in order to set up the disguise stage, providing Treatment Studio with a content template to work on.
