Description

Creative Concept & Direction Universal Everything This commission to light the Sails of Sydney Opera House epitomises the spirit of our studio - inventing new forms of moving image for emerging display technologies. Our long term passions of architecture, graphics, moving image and sound converge on this iconic building. Although embracing emerging technologies, our process always starts from drawing. The hand drawn techniques seen in this film are akin to the early pioneers of animation Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Walt Disney. Using these timeless techniques mean this film could have existed in 1920, albeit with a 21st century twist - bringing our influences of global pop culture, modernist graphics and physics simulations into a playful exploration of this iconic building. Vivid LIVE 22 May - 8 June. The seventh annual Vivid LIVE is part of Vivid Sydney, the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas.
