This is what we have been able to do with special projects at the Passion Play!
We've identified two major projects with the actual Passion Play for 2024 and 2025.
2025 Soundtrack Project: $150,000 Financial Need
Read about the full project by clicking the button below. This project involves recording an entirely new musical score for the Passion Play as well as replacing the current vocal performances with all professionals.
We need to raise $55,000 by April 1, 2024 in order to book the recording with the Budapest Scoring Symphony.
Advice: Listen on headphones or a large sound system with subwoofer for the full impact. Below is a sample of the new prelude to the Passion Play.

Projection Mapping and Digital Projections - 2026 and Beyond
WHAT IS 3D PROJECTION MAPPING?Unlike 2D projection mapping, 3D projections project onto a three-dimensional object so that the image warps and acquires the shape of said object. This technology enables images to be projected onto irregular objects.
Looks like these below at Universal Studios and Disney World at Animal Kingdom and Star Wars are only achievable through the use of advanced projection technology and digital mapping.
At each of these venues, the digital mapping allows scenes to play out on the sets in the case of the castle above. The Galaxy’s Edge set remains static but creates a captivating immersive experience that is simply unforgettable. Because of the sheer footprint of the sets, the throw distance and the ambient lighting conditions, the projectors that Disney and Universal uses are Christie Crimsons at a cost of $150,000 each with $25,000 lenses. The cost is immense with over 10 projectors needed for Disney and Universal. Because we have shorter throw distances and control of all the lighting, we can achieve the same effects with fewer projects that cost less. See an example of what digital mapping and projections can do below.
With five Epson LCD Large Venue Laser Projectors with 4K enhancements, we can create amazing lightning effects and surreal set glow effects to bridge the space between set and spectacular theater. Each projector costs $25,000 with a $3,500 lens. A total of 5 are needed to achieve the same spectacular effects as what you see above. Additionally, we will need a media server to house the videos, access design templates, and digitally map the set. The cost of the Hippotizer Tierra+ MK2 is around $20,000. To control and synchronize these effects, we would also need to upgrade our Grand-MA 3 lighting console to the flagship version. This full-size control room version allows us to seamlessly unite all performing systems without the risk of catastrophic failure.
Project Cost Breakdown
For a production length and scope of this size, production elements can be done for $15,000.
