South Yorkshire’s stately Cusworth Hall showed its patriotic true colours on June 2, by flying the flag to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Award-winning filmmaker and multi-media specialist Wayne Sables projection mapped the Union Jack onto the Grade 1 listed, 18th century property, usually described as the jewel in Doncaster’s crown.
Wayne is a specialist in Projection Mapping, the digital technique that can transform anything from cars to buildings and even natural landmarks into display spaces. Because of the hall’s prominent location, the June 2 mapping was visible for many miles around, making it one of the highest profile South Yorkshire events from the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
“It’s an enormous honour to be able to celebrate this landmark event, using projection mapping in such a highly visible way,” said Wayne.
“As a child, Cusworth Hall was my favourite place to visit and I now live right alongside and regularly walk my dog in the grounds. Cusworth Hall is an enormous part of my family’s daily life and to be able to bring it to life for the jubilee in this way [was] very special.”
Cusworth Hall was built between 1740 and 1744 for local land owner William Wrightson and is now the home of a museum that reflects the daily lives of people in Doncaster from the 18th century to the present day. The historic parkland surrounding Cusworth Hall is open to the public every day of the year.
Wayne has more than 20 years experience working with a wide range of businesses, councils, freelancers, creative organisations, producing, designing, developing and delivering high quality large scale multi art projects and creating films that tell his partners’ and clients’ stories.
