Philippe Bergeron is founder and CEO of PaintScaping, a global leader in 3D projection mapping. PaintScaping has done mapping in the USA, Mexico, Canada, France, Ireland, and South Africa. Its clients include MGM Resorts, Ritz-Carlton, Sony Pictures, Westin Hotels and Cirque du Soleil. Bergeron has had an eclectic background. He holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in computer science from University of Montreal, but is also a successful actor, and landscape designer. He co-directed the groundbreaking short "Tony de Peltrie," the world’s first CG human with emotions. Time Magazine hailed it as a "breakthrough.” It closed SIGGRAPH’85, the premier computer graphics trade show.
As a landscape designer, Philippe has created "The Forest of Mirrors," a garden that would make Houdini proud. Using over fifty giant hidden mirrors as masterful Trompe l’Oeil, it has been featured on HGTV and NBC. It was the location of SIGGRAPH'08 and SIGGRAPH'12's closing night receptions.
