For this first project based on photogrammetry, I wanted the 3D element not to hide this remarkable building. Finding a balance where the 3D would smoothly blend into the scenery, just like a chameleon will do, using a technique close to video mapping came as an interesting idea to me.

So, what to put over those stone walls and slate roofing ? Graphic patterns as seen on ancient engravings and etching or in traditional wine labels came as an interesting option to evoke the castle’s past. And to keep some color and modernity, an evocation of the very colorful scenography of the famous Fête de la Fleur, appeared to be a good option to add some rhythm and contrast to this short fantasy. All accompanied by custom-composed music.
