Described as “The best Christmas light switch-on in Wales”, residents in Barry, the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, enjoyed a specially commissioned visual spectacle created by London based The Projection Studio in December 2014. The display, across the front of the municipal library building in King Square, created a world-class lighting ceremony for area residents.

“It was fantastic! I love working in Wales … the people are amazing, there is always a
great vibe”

Due to the presence of a large Christmas tree right in the center of King Square, the biggest physical challenge was projector placement.  Ross came up with a radical solution which was to engage the services of Sound Base from Cardiff – which whom he’s worked on many previous occasions – who erected one of their complete 10 meter staging / roofing systems at the ‘back’ of the Square. This enabled Ross to position the six Panasonic DZ 21K projectors exactly where they were needed to cover the front of the library with the impressive 50 meter wide images.
