Vancouver CeremoniesJune 2, 2010 No Comments
The Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 relied more heavily on screen content that any other Olympic ceremony. We created a full 60 minutes of video content for the entire stadium floor, vertical 30 metre high screens, 360 degree circular screens, circular podiums and one massive 360 degree draped mountain screen. It was a huge logistical task, not to mention the year of work to get the spectacular content across the line.
A hit with the audience were the 3D whales that elegantly swam across the stadium floor, composited into an icy blue pacific ocean. As the whales breached, they triggered physical water spouts pre-set into the stadium floor. You can imagine the hours that were spent coordinating the animation with the physical spouts.
Our team spent most of their time at HQ, with a commanding view of the stadium, and perfect seats for the ceremonies as a reward.
Though this didn’t impress everyone!
