George Berlin Studios crafts artfully immersive audience experiences that charm, endear, and delight with inspired narrative and a powerful pull into playful fun.
George travels the world exhibiting projection mapping spectaculars that weave light, color, imagery, and sound together into a dimensional animated tapestry that brings spaces to life.
His projection epic “Let’s Dance” was voted Audience Favorite Award winner at Seattle’s 2018 Borealis Festival of Light by the 120,000 guests who experienced performances over the four-day event. He then launched a tour of his space saga “EarthRise: Apollo” at three world-class projection and light festivals around the globe celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing in 2019.
Other of George’s honors include a MUSE Award for his uniquely fancy-pants “Design a Dress” interactive installation at the Chicago History Museum, and six exclusive Notable Children’s Video Awards as lead animator and background artist certainly isn’t kid stuff. What is, though, are his two interactive installations at the Chicago area DuPage Children’s Museum, inspiring play and creative exploration around music and art – right in his wheelhouse!
George (along with C3) was celebrated as one of just 20 Featured Artists selected city-wide for Chicago Artists Month, and was also tickled to be tapped to create animated visuals for Latin Trap phenom Bad Bunny and his 2019 North American Tour, featuring a 100 foot LED-wrapped stage thrilling 20,000 fans a night from San Juan to Coachella.
