No other festival in the Southern Hemisphere illuminates a city quite like Vivid Sydney.
As the festival of light, music and ideas, Vivid Sydney flicks on the ultimate light switch and ignites the city with spectacular colours.
It features the lighting of the Sydney Opera House, which sees Utzon's iconic sails transformed into a spectacular living canvas with Vivid LIVE co-curator Laurie Anderson putting her own mark on Sydney's most recognised landmark. Now in its second year, it's a harbourside artwork that's grabbed the world's attention!
From the 27th May through till 21st June the people of Sydney were treated to a wonderful journey of projection and imagination with incredible lighting patterns beamed onto iconic buildings around the CBD that when sped up, into a timelapse sequence, gives the festival an entire new dimension.
This visual story was shot over the entire festival period using the latest camera technology from Canon - the 1D Mark IV DSLR and a variety of Canon L-series lenses.
The projections were expertly done by well known Sydney based projection company The Electric Canvas.
There was no shortage of Sydney locals and tourists alike actively capturing the festival from every possible angle in a variety of different ways - still photography & video being the most popular.
No one I could see was shooting time lapse sequences which, combined with the magic imagery being projected onto various buildings and structures around town including the world famous Sydney Opera House, I believed would generate some very interesting imagery.
Vivid Sydney 2010 is a visual story brought to you by local cinematographer Marcus O'Brien from Indigo Zoom Productions. Hope you enjoy it!
