Initially joey met Mary Lanoue-Gers at a Media Alliance meeting more than 3 years ago. We agreed that we should collaborate, but at the time both of us were still developing our new media initiatives out. Then this past year Alfonso Montemayor a colleague of Mary’s contacted joey and by that time we both had some mutual projects to discuss. So we were off!
The Collective met with Alfonso and did a full presentation for him and his partners in the new media division at Cox Media.
They were especially taken aback by the projection mapping and it was decided we would consult with them on a promotional projection mapping concept. The concept developed into a site specific projection project where they would be able to promote their clients through projection environments using branding in the background, as well as well customers/patrons.
