Multimedia visual spectacular for RussiaNovember 25, 2013
On the Black Sea Coast, Russia’s first and only open-air lifestyle entertainment center, now features a dramatic multimedia show by Australian firm Laservision.
At the mouth of the Mzymta River, in Russia’s largest resort city of Adler, Krasnodar Krai, just 30km southeast of Sochi, (venue for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games), the Mandarin Entertainment Centre consists of a range of recreational and entertainment attractions for year-round activities.
Designed in collaboration with world renowned architectural firm Jerde Partnership, the 3,500 square meter, “Zhemchuzhina Sochi” (Pearl of Sochi) multimedia attraction, will entertain more than 3,000 visitors a night.
The latest in entertainment technology and creative innovation to present one of Russia’s most popular poems ‘The Sun Thief’. Known for catchy rhythms, inventive rhymes and bizarre characters, this well-known childhood classic is the tale of a mischievous crocodile who steals the sun, plunging the world into darkness. Two bear cubs which were happily playing in the woods, become separated from their father due to the sun’s disappearance. Frightened, the animals turn to the bear to help retrieve the sun and bring joy back to the land.
‘The Sun Thief’, utilises universally recognisable themes of love, anger, fear, fantasy, joy and humour, as audiences are immersed in the 20 minute performance.
To appeal to the culturally diverse tourist market and transcend language barriers, Laservision’s creative department designed a light, sound and visual effect spectacular with no narrative or dialogue. The story and themes are communicated to the audience through the use of emotive imagery, a unique music score and visual effects.
In addition to the headline show, Laservision also produced a secondary high impact, high energy, visual effects spectacular designed specifically to thrill the audience. ‘FX Mania’ incorporates video mapping and multimedia technologies to create a synchronised, 20 minute, high energy, visual feast for audiences to enjoy. The Video Mapping Technologies are the same as those used for the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympic Games in 2012.
Over half a million lumens of LED light power is used in the show. Over 500 individually-controlled technologies, synchronised to 1 /100th of a second, were designed, produced and implemented by Laservision. A unique, music score was been created for the attraction, inspired by both modern European and contemporary works.
The entire show can also be operated by a tablet from anywhere in the world.
