Philippe Bergeron is Founder and CEO of PaintScaping, the world’s leader in 3D projection mapping. Time Magazine calls his work a breakthrough.
"3D projection mapping isn’t just a fad, it is a profound paradigm shift," says Bergeron, "it’s incredibly exciting. The real world becomes your canvas. We're about emotion. Stories. And, connecting with your audience.”
Topping the list of PaintScaping’s projects was the mapping experience created for the Bicentennial of the University of Virginia. Projected onto the University’s rotunda in front of 23,000 people, the experience brought the dramatic landmark’s history to life in a powerful way.
PaintScaping has designed and executed original mapping shows all over the world for clients including Gucci, Pasadena City College’s 90th Anniversary, The New York Public Library, Rihanna, Porsche, Sony Pictures, Ariana Grande, 375th Anniversary of Cape Cod’s oldest town, Ritz-Carlton, Westin Hotels, Tiffany, LA Dodgers, Sam Adams and more.
3D projection mapping experiences transforms worlds. And destroys them. Tell stories. Goes big and small. Paints landscapes and water.
PaintScaping simulates INCREDIBLE imaginary worlds. Your World is our Canvas.
Bergeron is also an actor, and CGI pioneer. As an actor, he has appeared in "Iron Man 2," "Mad Men," "Rush Hour 3," "Entourage," "Family Man," "Contact," "Godzilla," "E.R.," and guest starred on the season premiere of "The Sopranos" final season.
