V Squared Labs was chosen to direct the 3d mapping for hip hop artist Drake’s much-hyped OVO show in Toronto. The stage’s structural set consisted of gigantic columns with retractable scrims, upon which a barrage of animated type, colorful patterns and ambient effects were projected.
To highlight performances by musical guest Stevie Wonder, the team utilized a Kinect sensor to capture a surreal point-cloud avatar of the artist, which was projected live on the set to an astounded audience. Virkhaus again chose Leviathan to assist in animation and engineering. The V Squared Labs team in collaboration with Willo Peron group and Leviathan brought another 3D mapping experience to life on a very short time schedule.
