New trend: 3D projections and lighting displays
At the start of June I visited Sydney for a family weekend away and stumbled upon the Vivid Festival, which is a month long event displaying light installations and projections throughout the city, showcasing performances from local and international musicians as well as holding public talks and debates from leading global creative thinkers.
Walking through the city on my way to catch the ferry, there was a huge crowd of people looking towards Customs House where a combination of lights and images were being projected onto the building’s façade. Talk about being in the right place at the right time! ;-)
Lights and pictures were also being projected onto surrounding buildings all around the harbour – it was a great time to be catching the ferry! Leaving the harbour was an incredible sight with lights and images projected all over the city buildings.
For more information on this festival visit the event website.
This form of entertainment during festivals and events are becoming very popular. The Brisbane Festival debuted the Santos City of Lights event in 2011. This was a fun and exciting display of coloured lights and lasers radiating from the roof tops, along the river and bridges in sync with music at South Bank. It was a fantastic experience. If you missed it last year – check out the video:
If there is any truth in the old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words,” you’ll be amazed by the following videos below. Who would ever forget a show like this? This is a video of a 3D projection event that was displayed in Brisbane's Customs House in 2010.
Bringing it back into perspective, this type of entertainment could be great for an opening night or social function in your event program. Even just incorporating a higher level of lighting in the room and different lighting features and projections like in the picture below. It can really add that something extra to your event and let me tell you from first hand experience – it is a definite crowd pleaser! ;-)
