University of Johannesburg Open Day Presentation.
by the electronic communications department of the University
of Johannesburg to assist with their first centralised Open
Day, we conceptualised and researched a way to fill the main
auditorium with an audiovisual presentation made up of still
images, 360x360 images, 3D models, video, voice, and music.
The presentation was aimed at showcasing the five campuses and
nine faculties at the university.
long-throw projectors were set up in the auditorium and aligned
seamlessly, throwing the presentation onto the front and side
walls of the auditorium.
10 minute presentation was played 26 times throughout the Open
Day (20 May 2006) that was attended by more than 22 000 visitors.
presentation required numerous photographic shoots including
360x360 images, flat images and video on all five campuses.
Nine body-painted students were also 3D modeled for incorporation
into the presentation.
Below are the different Digital presentation formats

addition to this, we produced a CD presentation that was handed
out to prospective students at the Open Day. The CDs contained
information such as corporate videos, maps to the different
campuses, the career menu and application forms. This was burnt
onto 12 000 E-Cards and stands as the largest single production
of E-Cards in South Africa.

possible through a close working relationship with Solid Rock

LESEDI AFRICAN LODGE
African Lodge approached FullHouse
to consult on and design their stand for Indaba 2006.
If you don’t know Indaba www.indaba-southafrica.co.za
it is the largest tourism conference for Southern Africa attended
by some 12 000 international delegates and with around 1600
Lesedi stand position is between the ICC and
DEC in a high traffic area but also in an exposed
area (i.e. exposed to the Durban weather conditions –
typically raining one day, windy the next then hot as hell).
images needed to be of high enough quality to be printed in
a large format, the materials and print style needed to be selected
to withstand the elements as well as transportation and survive
for at least 3 years of exhibitions all over the country. Oh
and it needed to be high impact to attract the masses of traffic
of foot that passed the stand between exhibition halls.
in all it worked out just fine and the 60.8 square metres of
print area survived taking the Indaba SILVER award for stand
design (and that’s out of 1600 stands).
Judging was conducted over the weekend of the show by judges
from EXSA (The Exhibition Association of South Africa). Stands
were judged according to stand size allowing a fair representation
of small and large stands.

Nikon Case Study
was started with just one Nikon camera and continues to use
a range of Nikon equipment. We can certainly verify that
the Nikon equipment stands up to what we are prepared to
do to it to get the required shots.
images that we take and the presentations that we produce are
a result of the combination of the emergence of the digital
era and digital camera equipment, editing techniques, software,
concepts, ideas and people.
an interesting array of circumstances we came to present our
imaging and presentation abilities to Nikon South Africa.
explained how we combine a number of digital imaging techniques
using a range of digital cameras with various software and programming
techniques to create digital presentations for an extremely
diverse and high profile customer base. We then demonstrated
some of our most impressive work.
comment from the executive director of Nikon SA was “we
have heard of most of these specialist digital imaging techniques
but never actually seen them in use.”

action on various assignments for our Hard
@ Work gallery we discussed compiling an interactive presentation
auto run, interactive and hand out CD Presentation to educate
and excite 18 to 30 sales staff and management about the Nikon

models of the box sets unpacking to show, down to the lens cap,
the exact contents of each box
3D models of each camera to show the ergonomics and special
features of each camera’s design
Hard hitting Outro. Following on from “At the heart
of the Image” and making use of carefully selected images,
suitable music and key phrases the Outro leaves a lasting
impression around the Nikon brand
presentation we produced is a combination of excitement, technology
and many images, all taken with Nikon equipment. The packing
and interactive box sets are particularly effective.

a major player in the digital camera market and to be asked
to create such a presentation.

have performed imaging assignments for Protea Hotels internationally
in South Africa, Malawi and Nigeria with absolute efficiency.
FullHouse we are proud to say that we have developed numerous
relationships with groups such as Protea Hotels. Presenting
new ideas and concepts and seeing them approved at head office
level and being trusted to literally go wild with our ideas
order to compile 360x360 images and flat photography for incorporation
into the new www.cangocaves.co.za
web site it was necessary to spend some amount of time crawling
though the caves at night as during the daytime the caves are
often very busy with many people (it was dark anyway).
FullHouse we will immerse ourselves in your environment to
give you the best possible visual results.
have developed a passion for visually beautiful environments and
take great pleasure in presenting them in visual formats.
of the more fun assignments was when we got the go ahead to take
3 images inside each of the branches
around South Africa.
brief was a Stage Shot, a Table Dance Shot and a Private Room
Shot. The girls must be dressed. No customers in the shots.
order to get the images we had 5 minutes between the ladies being
ready and the customers arriving, which we bought ourselves by
asking the ladies to be ready 5 minutes earlier than usual. Asking
any lady to be ready 5 minutes early is a mission, this is a kittens
den of performing artists putting on their makeup and furs. The
Republic of ..........!
the environment was set, the lighting right and the ladies ready
some of them didn’t want their faces on the internet. The
solution here was obvious, show more of the body and less of the
interesting thing with taking 360x360 images is that you can’t
use artificial light and in low light situations longer shutter
speeds are required. Asking the feisty dancers to crowd around
a camera, stick out their chests and butts and to stay still while
you climb around the table might seem a little unfair but the
results speak for themselves.
able to work in any environment and with all types of people is
something we pride ourselves on. Also applying our imaging and
presentation skills and abilities to new ideas and concepts often
produces very interesting results.
we have to work really hard….FullHouse
