The UN DPI NGO conference was held in Melbourne at the end of August and was the largest UN event ever held in Australia. The conference focused on advancing global health, and was attended by more than 300 non-government organisations from 70 countries.
We had the pleasure of conceiving & producing the opening video for the conference, a made-for-projection piece that was played in full HD on a 10m screen. The theme was “in Melbourne, we are connected” and the Millennium Development Goals.
The Edge, Queensland’s digital culture centre, held their relaunch after some down time to recover from Brisbane’s monster floods. They asked us if we could provide some visuals that would be fresh and new- so we came up with some fun augmented reality Kinect hacks.
The scores are quite simple, and play with combining people’s real silhouettes with the interactive media. This resulted in people leaping around, having fun and being quite silly.
Ozri 2011, the Asia-Pacific’s leading spatial industry conference, was held from 12-14 October in Melbourne, Australia- and drew its biggest crowd in its 25 year history.
We were commissioned by Haycom AV to produce this 3240×1080 video and other event assets, which they projected onto three massive 15 metre x 5 metre screens using six-edge blended Christie projectors. The brief was to ‘chart the progression of maps throughout the ages whilst referencing the event and it’s unique direction.’ ESRI were thrilled with the results.
We developed a very fast and flexible projection mapping system which we were asked to present at Pecha Kucha Brisbane. This was part of that demonstration, however the same setup can very rapidly map out all sorts of shapes.
We’ve since moved on to 3D, but this still gets used quite a bit too due to it’s flexibility.
