New Giant Guitars!

Coming soon! We're building a new set of giant guitars. These guitars are designed to fit in smaller ballrooms and will have adjustable heights- 12ft or 15ft. Check out these construction shots in different stages. We'll post completed photos after a show in a couple of weeks.

Pixel Mapping

Jonathan Yeaworth, our GMP video guru, recently gave our staff an entertaining and informative presentation on “pixel mapping”- a video display technique that allows the projection of amazing images and animated graphics on scenery, general session stages, building exteriors, and even sandy beaches! Pixel mapping is the careful design of digital graphics to fit unique and unusual projection surfaces. This process helps eliminate scaling, distortion, or stretching of an image or video when projected onto a surface that is normally not intended to be used as a video “screen”. Pixel mapping allows us to turn ordinary stage sets into incredibly entertaining and engaging room environments that can constantly change to enhance the environment of any meeting or special event. We plan to use this technique during the opening ceremonies of a major convention slated for Atlantis this June. Watch for more info on pixel mapping as we integrate it into more upcoming shows! And, check out these links to watch a few samples of video mapping with amazing “wow” impact!
