Vancouver Convention Centre
Extending our successful partnership with BCIT Film Flex, the Vancouver Design Nerds were invited to create a digital-media installation for the opening of the Vancouver Convention Centre. Four 10′ x 8′ screens displaying five-minute DV loops were installed in first-floor meeting-rooms facing the main lobby. The installation was designed to create an ambient animation of the lobby, populated with life-size silhouettes inside the meeting room doorways.
In addition, three large format HD DV loops were provided for integration into a multi-media display for the opening ceremony on the trade-show floor. These clips were integrated with live-feed and pre-recorded content on opening night.
The project received great feedback from guests, VCC management and the public, as it was installed throughout the opening weekend while several thousand people visited the Centre.
The project was created by Mark Ashby (Producer), Alex Grunenfelder (Creative Director), Hans Berger (Director/Cinematographer) and Richard Pearce (Post-production) and was supported by superb silhouette acting and technical assistance by Varouj Gumuchian, Ting Pan, Susie, Michelle, Patrick Armstrong, Amanda Bell, Maia Love, Chris Akehurst, Magali Bailey, Tom Wynn and Monika Hildebrand. Musicians: Russell Sholberg (Bass), Cole Schmidt (Guitar), Jamie Carter (Drums).
