Vivid Sydney has taken the concept of large scale projections to a very large audience – and they love it.
But what is behind the technology that gets those images projected so far, so vividly and so accurately?
The man who pioneered large scale projection in this country is Peter Milne, owner of The Electric Canvas. I knew Peter back in the 90s when he started to specialise in theatrical lighting of buildings. In 1997 Peter purchased two Pigi projectors from France and his first commission for them was the opening of the Star City Casino in November that year.
In this interview Peter talks about the challenges of producing works for these very big events, we go into some of the technical detail and look at some of the striking events Peter has been involved in, not only in Australia but around the world.
