LOCATION: COLUMBUS (FT. BENNING), GEORGIA
Visitors enter the National Infantry Museum by walking The Last 100 Yards. Along an approximately 225-foot concourse, sloping on a roughly 5-degree incline, visitors encounter a sequence of eight highly charged environments depicting moments when the U.S. Army Infantry changed the course of history. Large-scale projection, scenic elements, macro artifacts, cast figures, theatrical lighting and an original music score that evolves as a visitor walks through the experience, invite them into the Infantry story in a deeply engaging way.
Fanning out from the 4,500-sq.ft. Last 100 Yards media experiences continue to weave the dramatic and revealing story of the U.S. Infantry through the museum and include multi-screen theaters, surprise-reveal scrim/screen environments, globe projections, and other special-format experiences produced by DLP for this unique attraction.

DLP provided turnkey media and theatrical concepts through post-production; worked closely with the technical team through all phases of engineering, testing, and installation; and directed onsite programming. The Last 100 Yards portion of the project required three months through concept and design, nine months from scripting and final design through post-production, and one month for media installation and on-site programming.
