HBO's Game of Thrones SXSWesteros 


CIVIC asked Red Paper Heart to create an art installation inspired by HBO’s GoT. This installation was more specifically inspired by the beloved character, Arya, and how she had changed throughout the seasons. Each attendee stepped into the shoes of young swordsmith, Arya Stark. Participants created their own profile, complete with their own photo, and then went on stage to hold a replica of Arya’s training sword. The activation accommodated three separate participants simultaneously making it critical that all video and audio worked together exactly.


Three fans stood in front of TSV’s 10’x10’ Custom Square Projection Screens and swung the swords to hit targets that eventually revealed a portrait of themselves. The portraits were projected using brilliant Barco 12,000-Lumen HD DLP Projectors. We flew the Barco systems from the ceiling and routed all of the video with an HD-SDI infrastructure and audio using the Soundcraft Si 24-channel digital mixer. A stunning JBL sound system provided the perfect audio backdrop for the activation.


The video and audio worked perfectly together because of our expertise and equipment. The activation was extremely successful and TSV was asked to recreate the experience at Comic Con in San Diego!
