Sydney based Artists in Motion produced the spectacular 2015 Christmas Celebrations in Hong Kong as part of the ‘WinterFest Festival’ spearheaded by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, to promote Hong Kong as a must-see destination.
Produced and conceived by Artists in Motion, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Tourism Board, the Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show was enjoyed by over half a million visitors nightly throughout the Christmas celebrations.
The video mapped show that was projected on the façade of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, featured an 8-minute animated tale of one little girl’s Christmas wish, brought to life by a host of animated characters.
While building projections have historically showcased the use of light and colour, what made this show such a stand-out was the unfolding story at the heart of the piece and its goal to spread Christmas cheer to the city of Hong Kong.
The show included the use of synchronised lighting effects throughout a specifically designed lighting rig, combined with a composed soundtrack broadcast using immersive sound design technology in the Open Air Piazza of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Spectators could also follow the music by downloading the Hong Kong Pulse Sound Track app.
The Hong Kong Cultural Centre is the largest full cinematic ‘screen like’ edge-to-edge facade on Kowloon Harbour. It is located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, visible from across the harbour, and to the entire skyline of Hong Kong Island, as well as the live audience who frequent the open air Piazza nightly.
Artists in Motion also produced a Son et lumière for Chinese New year in Hong Kong and are now preparing for Vivid Sydney.
